The Pearls are a poor,loving family living in Woodlawn, IL, near Chicago.Their father, Dashel, makes a living working for the library. One cold day in January 2011, he goes missing while riding his bike to work. Early, her mom, and her brother ,Jubie, must move into a homeless shelter. But Dashel hasn't disappeared without a trace. There's a pattern to what's happened, and in order to get her father back, Early will have to decipher it.
I really liked how Early tried to solve the mystery herself. She was a really believable character with very human emotions. I also liked the cast of interesting characters that Early met both at school, the library, and the homeless shelter.
I would recommend this book to all mystery lovers. I think that people who like words, books, and writing will especially like this book. It has a touching message about the homeless and I really enjoyed reading it.  Library Catalog
