Beschreibung

ldquo;The writing is fluent and stylish, and Charlotte’s engagement with Russian folklore adds depth to her view of her family’s tragedies past and present. The book is insightful about the delicate equilibrium of families; its portrait of Charlotte’s mother, fierce, self-contained and yet dependent, is original and haunting, and Charlotte’s desperate need for her love is beautifully complicated. The parental abduction plot is suspenseful, but it’s the familial struggle that will really strike a chord with readers.”

Zusammenfassung
“A thought-provoking examination of familial love.” —Booklist
“A great coming-of-age story for fans of…Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist…and Thanks for the Trouble.” —School Library Journal

After Charlotte’s father is kidnapped, she and her mother must overcome their differences and find a way to rescue him in this eloquent, moving portrayal of family from the author of William C. Morris Award finalist Tell Me Something Real.

In search of the perfect story to put a human face on a tragedy, Charlotte’s reporter dad will fly into the eye of a storm. And now he’s heading to Ukraine, straight into the aftermath of a deadly earthquake. Charlotte doesn’t want him to leave. She doesn’t want to spend the week alone in a silent house with her mother, whose classically Russian reserve has built a wall between them that neither knows how to tear down.

Charlotte is holding it together okay—until the FBI comes knocking on her door. Her father has been taken hostage! The quake has left so many orphans and widows, but Charlotte refuses to be counted among them. Whatever it takes to get her dad back, she’ll do it. Even if it means breaking a promise…or the law.
