The Treasure House by Linda Newbery
When Nina’s mother mysteriously runs off leaving only a short note and a few texts, Nina is determined to find out where her mother has gone and what made her leave so suddenly. Strange clues begin to turn up at the second hand store run by Nina’s two great-aunts while Nina is helping out there, and she embarks on a mission involving treasures, secrets, recycled fashions and even llamas!
The Treasure House is a nice story about family with charming characters and a great plot.
