Siblings India, Finn, and Mouse are stunned when their mom tells them they are flying that night--without her--to their Uncle Red's home in Colorado. But things take an even more dramatic turn when their plane lands in a very unusual place. A mysterious driver meets them at the airport; when he drops them off at their "destination," each kid suddenly has a clock with a different amount of time left. If the time runs out, they have to become permanent citizens in a place they don't recognize or understand. Only if they work together can they call the driver back to help get them where they really belong. Suspenseful, funny, dramatic, and thought-provoking, this is a book that will stay with you long after you read the incredible ending.

Honestly, even though the last chapter does explain why the book was so confusing, I really didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. The story is disjointed, and while, yes the final chapter explains why, I feel like there are still unanswered questions that have left me confused.
Was Falling Bird a real place? Or was it a sort of Purgatory? Or the tunnel that takes you to the white light at the end of your life? Or was it simply a dream concocted as a coping mechanism? And if it was, why did all three kids dream exactly the same dream?
I found myself annoyed with the book throughout most of the middle of the story. And even thought I felt like it had a clever ending, I'm still unsure of how I feel about the book as a whole. It was good and kids may enjoy it. But I felt like it could have been a whole lot better.
If you want a book for middle-school level readers (even if only in 4th grade) or upper-elementary listeners that will have them and/or you turning the pages eagerly and anxiously, with a lot of "What the HECK??" and a few "UH oh!" reactions along the way, this is the book for you!
