Haddix has created another intriguing, vastly imaginative and clean adventure for middle readers. Jonah and Katherine have been sent to to fix the Ripple released by Second, a maverick time traveler from the future, in Their journey lands them on haddox deck of the Discovery, captained by Henry Hudson the great or perhaps not so great explorer. They live through a mutiny, survive being set adrift with no food on icy seas in a small shallop, and even manage to avoid death at the claws of a hungry bear.

But have their efforts fixed time, or have they simply made things worse? This installment of The Missing series is as complicated as the others. JB, a more reliable traveler from the future, informs them that mistake after mistake has been made, and only then did gaddix learn that not everything they thought they knew is true.


In a period of unraveling time, all natural time laws are skewed. In particular, duplicate objects and people can exist in a shared moment of time.

Especially when the kids and JB meet in the same time hollow, JB coming from the future and the kids traveling in linear time, and their exchange of information causes the events JB just lived through! For example, robotic digging machines from hadrix future dig the Northwest passage, translation vaccines enable a person to understand all languages past or present, and disguises that cannot be removed until—viola!

It is this historical grounding that goes the farthest haxdix authenticating her outrageous tales.

I do love that she gives so much historical detail. The sailors are gaunt, with pox marks and scurvy. She mentions stuff like that. Hollywood gives us the impression that everyone in history was beautiful and healthy except the occasional bad guy.
