Revealed by Margaret Haddix - ESSENTIAL

Haddix, Margaret Peterson  Revealed,  438p. Simon & Schuster, 2014.   $17.99. Violence: G (mild danger).  


Did Charles Lindbergh just appear in Jonah’s living room and steal his sister Katherine?  How did every adult, Mom, Dad, Angela, and even JB regress to their 13yo selves?  Jonah’s life is filled with more confusion and danger than he ever would have thought possible - even when he was facing the bullets of the Romanovs’ destruction in 1918.  Gary and Hodge have not given up on getting the fortune that they want what stealing famous children from time.  They are willing to break every rule and destroy entire timelines to get their way.  Only Jonah, a grieving father, and a 13yo promise have any chance of saving Jonah and his family.

Haddix hangs onto her time lines with her fingernails in this final complicated book of the series.  I’m not sure that I even understood everything that was going on.  Her resolution, however, is elegant and believable, with a twist even more unexpected.  Nicely done!
