When the Johnson family wanders into a new coffee bean shop with a naked-mermaid logo and a strange-sounding name, little do they know what Starbucks will someday become. The year is 1971, and Seattle's own Jimi Hendrix has just died overdose -- just months before the first Bumbershoot music festival. Written in the voice of a ten-year-old girl, Pike Place begins in the town of Richland, home of the Hanford nuclear plant and the Manhattan Project. When the family moves into the "Seattle City Limits," the kids explore the city on foot and mini bikes. But then the unimaginable happens: one day, one of the Johnson children disappears -- magical play lands become forbidden woods, suspicion clouds every interaction, and even Pike Place Market itself stirs up feelings of uncertainty and fear. Pike Place is a story of innocence and innocence lost. It is a quest for what was -- for closure, for reconciliation, for a return to a place that only exists in the memory.
