The Map of Me by Tami Lewis Brown

In The Map of Me by Tami Lewis Brown, Margie goes on a mission to find her Mama who disappeared and left a note on the fridge saying, I HAVE TO GO , but where? She tries to find out and ends up on a HUGE adventure. Margie makes herself promise to find Mama and save the day and to live up to her sister, Peep, who is a genius and is always getting money for good grades. Margie soon finds herself kidnapping her sister while trying to get to a chicken museum in the car they stole from her Dad.  Since Mama is obsessed with chickens and needs only one more to complete her collection, the chicken museum is a reasonable place to search for her.  The whole time Margie wonders, Should I have done this? Can I turn the car around and give up? But she always answers, no , and the search continues.
This book is a little young for me, so that may be why I do not give it such good reviews but to younger people (ages 7-9) it would be perfect. The one thing I did not like about the book is that the ending did not wrap up the story for me like it could have.  It seemed like a sequel may be in the works (if there is that would be great!)
