Michoel Lederman would be the first to tell you that it’s not easy having a special-needs sibling. Why does everything have to always revolve around Rikki and her cerebral palsy? To have to move with his family away from all his friends, his school, his pet parrot, and all that’s familiar to him, to faraway America, all because of Rikki and her special needs, is not an easy concession for a twelve-year-old to have to make.
Actually, moving to another place because of a situation that’s not in your control is not an easy concession for anyone, of any age, to have to make. One of my friends was forced to move with her husband and family from Eretz Yisrael to America due to family circumstances—and boy did she take it hard! While, as a wife and mother, she couldn’t exactly sit in her house and mope all day, it did take her a good few months to come to terms with the move, and until she did, there was many a day when she had to force herself to smile in spite of the bleakness she was feeling.
So when things don’t exactly go smoothly for Michoel in his new home…well, you can’t really blame him for being grumpy and out-of-sorts, can you?
But then a baffling mystery begins to rear its head, with implications that are very serious indeed… And before he knows it, Michoel finds himself knee-deep among cops and robbers that aren’t part of a game at all, but are quite true-to-life indeed!
For the adventure-loving tween (especially boys!) in your life who can also appreciate a deep message or two—this is a novel that will send chills and thrills down your spine! Join Michoel and his buddies in their fast-paced and frightening detective work…and see where it will lead everyone…
