From the New York Times bestselling author of the Emily Windsnap series comes a captivating adventure about family, friendship, and the bonds that bridge time.
The sleepy seaside village of Porthaven hides a mystery: Mia’s grandad has vanished, and nobody knows why. When Mia and her mom rush to Porthaven to help her grandmother, Mia imagines long dreary days with no one to talk to except for the old-time fisherman at her grandparents’ pub. But that’s before Mia finds a diary on an empty, docked fishing boat and starts exchanging notes with a local girl named Dee, a girl who seems much like her. Mia is excited about having a new friend, but why do their plans to meet each other never materialize? And why does Dee claim to be stuck at home due to violent storms when Mia sees only sunny skies? Will Mia be able to solve the mystery of where — and when — her grandfather and friend might be before time and tide forever wash away their futures?

North of Nowhere by Liz Kessler is a fascinating and descriptive book. It’s about a girl named Mississippi. Her grandpa is missing, she finds a mysterious diary on a boat and she tries to find the girl who wrote the diary. Meanwhile she meets Peter who also wants to find the girl. The mystery is, where is the person who wrote the diary and how are her and Peter related.
I think other kids would enjoy it because you can really get a picture in your head of what’s going on. Normally I can’t, but I can now with this special book. If you enjoyed reading Emily Windsnap, you won’t be disappointed with Liz Kessler’s new book.
My favorite part was when they were on the boat and they were trying to find the girl who writes in the diary. This author was very successful with this book. Yea! I rate this book, drum roll please………………5 stars! ***** Hooray for Liz Kessler!
