9780061288418: Tracking Daddy Down

Billie Wisher's daddy isn't a no-good bank robber . . . is he?

Billie's daddy is on the run. If the police catch him, it's off to Pendleton Penitentiary for sure. And she just got him back, after he spent years away in California. She had big plans for the summer—plans that won't be any fun without Daddy.

It must all be a mistake. Daddy didn't mean to rob that bank. If Billie finds him before the cops do, she can help him put everything right. She has an idea where he might be holed up. But Mama keeps asking what she's up to, and Billie's new stepfather, Daddy Joe, is always around, poking his nose in her business.

With her family at stake, Billie's determined to track Daddy down at all costs—but will anything turn out the way she expects?

About the Author:

Marybeth Kelsey is the author of Tracking Daddy Down. She has worked as a telephone operator, a hospital nurse, a scriptwriter, and a jewelry maker. She lives with her family in Bloomington, Indiana.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. Grade 4–7—A riveting opening sentence pulls readers into this unusual story of 11-year-old Billie Wisher, whose father and uncle have just robbed a bank. The girl adores her dad despite his pattern of abandonment. She is determined to find him before the police do and wants him to return the money. Billie convinces her cousin Tommy to go on her secret quest. As she creates a cumbersome trail of lies for her mother and stepfather and to cover her tracks with the townspeople, she weaves a labyrinthine web that becomes increasingly more difficult to manage. Kelsey has created a determined, feisty heroine whose sometimes foolish courage grows out of her love for her father and her need to believe that he is basically a good man, and even the danger involved in following him doesn't alter her resolve. The intensity of Billie's emotions causes readers to hope that she can make this dismal situation turn out happily. This multifaceted story of adventure, family, love, and trust is a testament to how strong a child's need for fatherly attention and love can be. The jarring disconnect between the book's underlying serious theme and the cartoonish art and bright red and pink on the jacket is unfortunate.—Renee Steinberg, formerly at Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
