Crunch by Leslie Connor

Crunch by Leslie Connor, HarperCollins Publishers, 2010.

I got this book for a possible book club choice and couldn't believe how fast I read it, Dewey Marriss and his siblings are taking care of their bike shop and farm while their parents are away celebrating their wedding anniversary.  Everything is going okay until there is a sever "crunch" for gas and their parents cannot make it back home.  The little Marriss bike shop takes off with everyone needing a new set of wheels or repairs in order to commute. Dewey has to figure how to manage the shop and help his younger siblings deal with their parents absence. In top of everything else small thefts are taking place and no one is more surprised that Dewey to find out who the culprit is.  Love this book.
