No Passengers Beyond This Point by Gennifer Choldenko
In No Passengers Beyond This Point by Gennifer Choldenko, the Tompkins family loses their home to foreclosure. The mother gets separated from Mouse, India, and Finn, the children. They are sent to Uncle Red's home in Colorado. A person who picks them up in Colorado doesn't know who Uncle Red is. In their conversation with Chuck (the person who picked them up at the airport) Uncle Red never comes up. They each have a clock with time to either stay in Colorado or find their parents and continue their life as it was before the foreclosure. The time is running out and they each have a puzzle piece. As Finn and Mouse stay together, India gets a job as a welcomer. If Finn and Mouse don't receive India's puzzle piece they will never be able to make contact with their mom or Uncle Red. Will India's puzzle piece be joined with Finn and Mouse's puzzle pieces? Will they make it to Uncle Red's? Read the book to find out.
I really liked this book because I enjoy mysteries and books with suspense. If you like mystery and suspense then I would recommend this book for you.
