Frankie, Earl, and Angela never expected to enjoy spending the summer with their Aunt Lula. But they had no idea just how bad it would be. When Lula disappears, the kids have no food, no money -- and no one to take care of them. Someone has to take charge, and since Earl is the oldest, he feels responsible. He needs money, and stealing bikes might be the only way to get it. Stealing feels wrong, but no one is watching....
From Newbery Honor award-winning author Jane Leslie Conly comes this gripping story of three young children forced to make some hard choices as they struggle to survive on their own. A gritty, ultimately uplifting tale of right and wrong, this fast-paced, suspenseful thriller will keep readers riveted.
