I got this book as a recommendation from hmmm… I can’t remember if it was Faith or misseditor from Little Red Reading Hood. So far it’s absolutely spiffy!

Susan, Murray, and Charles are sent to live with their eccentric uncle after 9/11. Soon his crooked house turns into a boat after a “flood”, and Susan must rescue the family from grave danger.

Mermaids, time, magic, pirates. All in one book: Drift House by Dale Peck.

I haven’t finished it yet, so I don’t have any final thoughts.
