My TMT book swap!

Jen and Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts are hosting a book and bookmark swap. Click on the cute logo for more information on how to participate (you don't have to be a teacher, just be willing to send a book and bookmark!)

Here is a picture of my book and bookmark that Heidi ( @MoxRees) sent me I've never read any books by Blue Balliett, so I'm pretty excited!

Summary from Amazon:
From NYT bestselling author Blue Balliett, the story of a girl who falls into Chicago's shelter system, and from there must solve the mystery of her father's strange disappearance.

Where is Early's father? He's not the kind of father who would disappear. But he's gone . . . and he's left a whole lot of trouble behind.

As danger closes in, Early, her mom, and her brother have to flee their apartment. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to move into a city shelter. Once there, Early starts asking questions and looking for answers. Because her father hasn't disappeared without a trace. There are patterns and rhythms to what's happened, and Early might be the only one who can use them to track him down and make her way out of a very tough place.

With her signature, singular love of language and sense of mystery, Blue Balliett weaves a story that takes readers from the cold, snowy Chicago streets to the darkest corner of the public library, on an unforgettable hunt for deep truths and a reunited family.
