Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2

Twelve-year-old Myla finds herself in the middle of a decades-old crime conspiracy after she purchases a mysterious street-fair necklace engraved with the Indian symbol Om and the word, "keeper." Chari's (Vanished, 2011) latest thriller is wholly original, celebrating diversity within and between families, presenting graffiti as an art form, and acquainting audiences with the practice and practicality of parkour. When Om symbols start appearing on train stations around New York City, Peter knows his recently missing brother, Randall ("Mighty"), must be responsible. Peter teams up with Myla to find Randall before local gang the Fencers does. Fast-paced and intricately plotted, Chari's mystery is a rare achievement that pays off at every turn, featuring characters of color interested in their families' histories and cultures. Spot art further draws readers into the sleuthing atmosphere as they get a look at entries in Myla and Peters' notebooks. Myla and Peter's race to find Randall turns into a race to discover a family secret that comes to a gripping and satisfying conclusion. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Spring

Peter and Myla, twelve-year-old neighbors in Dobbs Ferry, just north of NYC, work together to investigate the disappearance of Peter's older brother, Randall. Graffiti, parkour, diamond smuggling, gang knaves, and a family secret involving the boys' deceased diamond-cutter grandmother all factor into the mystery. An exciting, fast-paced, and diversely populated urban adventure told from the rotating viewpoints of Myla, Peter, and (later) Randall. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
