Two best friends on the run... to IKEA.   Frankie and Walter aren’t really running away. Just like the kids in their favorite book, they are running to somewhere. Specifically, a massive furniture store. They’ve been obsessed with the Ikea catalog for years. So they make a plan, pack their backpacks, give their parents the sleepover switcheroo . . . and they’re in.   One night all on their own, with no grown-ups or little brothers.   One night of couch jumping, pillow forts, and unlimited soda refills.   One night of surprises and twinkle lights and secrets they have been keeping—and waiting to share.   One unforgettable night in Ikea. A tribute to the beloved classic From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler!  Only, instead of running away to the Metropolitan Museum, these kids are running away to somewhere a little more modern...

An engaging read that deals with deep issues and emotions with a light touch and a pitch-perfect narrative voice. The Horn Book 
“Readers will revel in Frankie and Walter's cathartic romp and learn much about grief, family, and friendship along the way. Kirkus Reviews
A dazzling debut by an author that we will hopefully be hearing much more from in the future. “ – Cammie McGovern, author of Say What Your Will and A Step Toward Falling
A hilarious, hair-raising page turner, and an iconic portrayal of best friendship. It will be a long, long time before Frankie and Walter decamp from my heart. Suzy Becker, author of Kate the Great
