When Shaheen's dad disappears, Shahi ropes her cousin Tannaz (Naz) into her increasingly frantic search. The two wind up at Shahi's dad's favorite record store. The owner, a Black man named Earl, is also missing. The girls climb in a window, and, upstairs, discover an enormous, unusual jukebox that plays full records. And when they put one of Shahi's dad's records on...they time-travel. Their search for Shahi's dad becomes a hunt through time, as they visit a women's march in DC and a James Brown concert in Boston. But their trips are taking a toll; each time the girls return, they have headaches, and Naz begins to lose her hearing. Will they find Shahi's dad before it's too late?

Beyond the inventive premise (time travel by handmade jukebox), Chanani creates depth in her characters: Shahi is desperate to find her dad not just because he's missing and she's worried, but because they fought before he disappeared. Naz wants her uncle back, too, because he's the only person she's told that she's bi, and she isn't sure how her own parents will take the news. Shahi and Naz are brown-skinned; Shahi's dad is white.

Quotes

Music and time travel mix to create an original and fun graphic novel, great for middle grader readers.

Shaheen's dad has disappeared, and she can only find a few strange things to help her figure out what has happened to him. She teams up with her cousin and discovers that a jukebox not only plays music, but transports them back in time. Every song takes them to a new place, but finding her dad in time will be more than a challenge.

This is a cute, fun graphic novel for middle graders. The illustrations are well done and set each scene...and with all of the historical flipping, they are wonderful ones...perfectly. Energy and excitement ride almost as high as the mystery. Plus, the idea of a jukebox sending people through time according to the songs played is simply tons of fun.

I enjoyed the jumps through time, but even more so, the relationships. The author has built a wonderful bond between daughter and father. It's simply refreshing to see this type of family closeness. Shaheen's relationship with her cousin is also lovely. It simply is a book, which puts family in a high position...and that is nice to see.

This tale flows with a interesting plot and keeps the pace quick all the way through. I did wish that some of the jolts through time had a bit more meaning in the overall plot or character development, and the characters themselves did lack a bit of depth. Still, it's an enjoyable read, which middle graders are sure to enjoy.

I received an ARC and enjoyed reading it quite a bit. ( )
