No Passengers Beyond This Point

Rating
Three siblings - India, Finn, and Mouse - have less than forty-eight hours to pack up all their belongings and fly, without Mom, to their uncle Red's in Colorado, after they lose their house to foreclosure. But when they land, a mysterious driver meets them at the airport, and he's never heard of Uncle Red.

Sharp dialogue, high stakes, and taut action make this a book that will stick with you long after you read the incredible ending..
