One of my pet peeves with many book series these days is that it is usually not hard to tell long before reaching the end of the book that there will be another in the series. This book did not have such a feel to it, which I really appreciated. In fact, it wasn't until I had finished that I found out the author does intend to write another in the series. This was quite surprising to me as I have no idea where he can go with the story line, considering how neatly wrapped up the book was at the end. I'll definitely keeps my eyes peeled for the next installment when it comes out, in the meantime I guess I'll just have to begin reading his other series, Spy Factory.
Sure the idea of kids being forced to save the world from doom isn't a new idea but it's done in a way that does feel fresh. I never felt like the story was a rehashing of other books out there. As a result, I wasn't bored by the story. I wanted nothing more than to keep reading and figure out what was going on. The writing style was fun. Auggie's voice reminded me quite a bit of Percy Jackson but maybe a bit more "mature"?
The time travel aspect was cool. They travel back and meet famous characters that Auggie and Emily learned about it school. I liked the emphasis of how important it is to remember what you learn in school because you'll never know when you need to use it. [Once again, it reminds me of Percy Jackson.]
I appreciated the fact that Emily was very much Auggie's equal partner. She's not the sidekick or someone who has to rely on him for help. She's smart and got a good head on her shoulders. I don't know if I could be so quick thinking if I were in her situation. Auggie is a good guy as well. He might not be as on top of things as he could have been but what do you expecting when you're thrown into a bizarre situation blindly?
The bottom line? It's a super fun Middle Grade book.
*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is a story about an everyday kid who finds himself on an adventure that he had never imagined. Just before his 10th birthday Auggie finds a hole in time which allows him to travel back to the past, which in turn leads him to discover some truly amazing family secrets. He meets a fellow (more seasoned) time traveller called Emily who spills the news that they are in fact Agents and that they have an important mission - to stop history from being changed by the baddies.
The authors style of writing is a very easy read and the plot flows effortlessly from Auggie's initial discovery to the final climax. Auggie and Emily become part of some very famous historical events throughout the story and it bought back amusing memories of Forrest Gump floating around in the background of some similarly significant events.
One thing I noticed was that there were many messages hidden in the story for young readers emphasizing good human qualities such as loyalty and the importance of family. Along the way there were many problems that Auggie and Emily needed to work together to solve in order to achieve their goal.
My overall impression of this book is that it is a well written and wholesome story that I would happily recommend for children to read. It'll be sure to teach them as well as entertain them.
