Christmas has a funny way of
bringing families together—or
tearing them apart, and thankfully
for Izzy Fontaine, the star of
Jennifer AlLee’s A Wild Goose Chase
(Abingdon Press), she
finds something that brings her
and her recently departed grandmother
together again: As it turns
out, a quilt with a Wild Goose Chase
pattern that she’s now in possession
of, thanks to her grandmother,
reportedly leads to a great treasure.

Fast-paced and intriguing, sort of
like the Nicolas Cage National Treasure
movie with more of a homespun
flair, will Izzy ever find the
prize her grandmother intended
for her? That’s precisely what AlLee
hopes readers will be intrigued
by—“the detours, speed bumps,
twists and turns of the journey.”
