Summary

"This is the kind of read that makes your soul sit up straight. At once a heart-wrenching tale of found family and a thrilling, atmospheric mystery that keeps you guessing at every page, Ally Carter's middle grade debut is a triumph. I loved April's character down to the barb wire wrapped around her heart, and I cheered for her journey and the extraordinary bravery required to open up to other people." --Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of Aru Shah and the End of Time



"A fast-paced thrill ride of a book . . . it's Batman meets Annie." --Stuart Gibbs, New York Times best-selling author of the Spy School series

"An adventure-filled read with a twisty mystery and spunky friendships. I loved it!" -Melissa de la Cruz, New York times best-selling author of The Descendants series

April didn't mean to start the fire. She wasn't the one who broke the vase. April didn't ask to go live in a big, creepy mansion with a bunch of orphans who just don't understand that April isn't like them. After all, April's mother is coming back for her someday very soon.

All April has to do is find the clues her mother left inside the massive mansion. But Winterborne House is hiding more than one secret, so April and her friends are going to have to work together to unravel the riddle of a missing heir, a creepy legend, and a mysterious key before the only home they've ever known is lost to them forever.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Orphaned April didn't mean to burn down the Winterborne exhibit, so she is shocked when, instead of getting in trouble, she hears from a "Miss Nelson," who invites her to live at Winterborne House, home to the billionaire family beset by tragedy, including the disappearance of their heir, Gabriel. At the house, she meets four other children--Sadie, an inventor; Violet, a quiet girl; Tim, Violet's companion; and Colin, a former thief--but April is determined to learn everything she can about the Winterbornes. When she discovers Gabriel hiding in caverns beneath the mansion, she must convince him to reveal himself before the family declares him dead. New York Times best-selling Carter's middle-grade debut will excite a new generation of fans--even if they do see the bad guy coming from a mile away. The characters are likable and endearing, and the final paragraph, with its subtly shocking revelation, will leave readers demanding to know when the second book is coming. Hand this one to those who enjoy action, mystery, and kick-butt characters. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The ever-popular Carter's middle-grade debut, supported by a seven-city author tour, is sure to draw interest."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this entertaining adventure reminiscent of Annie, five precocious foster siblings discover secrets in their sprawling new home. April, 12, has been in the foster system ever since her mother abandoned her with nothing but an ornate key and promise of her return. When the key turns out to bear the crest of the fabulously wealthy Winterborne family--whose sole heir, Gabriel, vanished a decade prior after his family was killed--April sneaks into the family's just-opened museum exhibit, intent on finding what it might unlock. She accidentally sets the exhibit aflame, and when she awakens in the hospital, April and several other children, including genius Sadie, who is black, and Londoner con artist Colin, are brought to Winterborne House as an effort to turn it into a group home. Once there, April discovers that Gabriel is alive, hiding in the mansion's secret passages, and has a good reason for remaining hidden for so long--someone's fiendish plan, which the children must help him thwart. In her middle grade debut, Carter (Not If I Save You First) offers up mystery, intrigue, and swashbuckling action in a rollicking story of long-lost secrets and found family. Ages 10--12.
