All Day


Newbery Medalist Avi brings us untamed, lawless San Francisco during the 1848 gold rush with the story of a willful heroine who is plunged into an unintended and dangerous adventure. Tory eager to seize control of her own destiny, stows away on the westbound ship carrying her father and younger brother, Jacob. When Jacob vanishes, kidnapped, perhaps hidden among the hundreds of ships called Rotten Row. If he is there, Tory must find him in a treacherous search.
