The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm by Nancy Farmer

IMG_0339It’s a fantastical adventure, traveled by three wanderlust-craving kids with a strict, militant general father. Tendai, Rita, and Kuda sneak out of their heavily armed house one morning in Zimbabwe, onto the streets, and are quickly kidnapped. After ending up in the toxic wasteland ruled by an insane dictatorial woman, their parents hire the Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, three exceptionally talented detectives with unusual powers. The three men join a wild goose chase around Africa to return the children home safely. This novel is like no other I’ve ever read, using the future and the past to create an extraordinary story.
