Nell hasn’t seen her father since the day he had her fired from her dream job at the New York Public Library. But he’s been found dead at his desk in the map library, and in a secret compartment of the desk, Nell finds the map that was the cause of her dismissal. As she researches the map, she stumbles on to something mysterious that leads her not only on an actual road trip, but on a more esoteric exploration of the magic of maps, libraries, and family, and the places they help us find.
