Waiting on Wednesday: No Passengers Beyond This Point

This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.

This Week I'm Waiting On:
No Passengers Beyond This Point
by Gennifer Choldenko
Release Date: Feb 8, 2011
I loved Al Capone Does My Shirts.  It was one of the first middle grade books I read that had a character with autism.  It handles that topic as well as the difficulties of being the sibling of someone with autism.  My students just did lit circles, and this was one of the book choices.  I'm super excited to see another book by her.

From Goodreads
An unexpected reality-bender from a Newbery Honor author.

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. Like Dorothy in Oz, they find themselves in a place they've never heard of, with no idea of how to get home, and time is running out.

In a total departure, Gennifer Choldenko tells a story of adventure and survival, set in a fantastical place with rules all its own
