"It's a perfect book for middle-grade readers for summer reading," Pearl says. "The main character is a young orphan named Cady, and she has no idea who her parents are. She comes to live above the lost luggage emporium in this strange city. And there she meets a lot of odd and interesting people, all of whom seem to have something to do with her background. And so in this quest to find out who she really is, we move forward in the plot rooting for Cady all the time.
