This story is basically about three kids Chess, Emma, and Finn Greystone who come home from school one day, and overhear a news broadcast talking about three kids from Arizona who were kidnapped with their exact same names, which definitely creeps these kids out The day after that happens, their mom announces that she s going on an unexpected business trip and doesn t know when she ll come back The Greystone kids then go to live with a woman who used to be friends with their mom, and who has a daughter of her own, Natalie From there, they start to notice a bunch of screwy things going on and decide to investigate, sending the four kids on this crazy mission.Okay, I can t say too much without giving away spoilers and believe me, you do not want to get spoilers for this book, but think Nickelodeon s mystery series HUNTER STREET meets Netflix s STRANGER THINGS.But yeah, all in all, definitely one of my favorite Haddix books, and definitely purchasing when it gets released flag 5

still, i enjoyed myself very much and couldn t wait to find out what was happening.I really liked how the three point of views from each child is developed and explains a little bit , not only about the story and the plot that progress, but even what they are feeling, what they are thinking individually and how each of them is different and at a different age stage.I think this is seriously an

share their birthdays The next day their mother has to leave town for work, and the trio stumble into a mystery that has them looking for clues, breaking secret codes, and traveling to other worlds I remember reading and loving Haddix s Hidden Children series as well as her book Running Out of Time I was very excited, then, to receive a digital ARC of this book to review Similar to Haddix s other books, this book is filled with lots of action and adventure to help keep kids reading and turning the pages Unlike many of her other works, though, this one has a rather slow build There is a lot of explanation and a lot of description of the kids sitting around trying to figure things out If you have read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, you ll remember the 100 pages when Harry and Hermione and sometimes Ron are camping they move from place to place and keep trying to figure things out, but there isn t much action in that section of the book It s the same in this book for the first 75% or so It s a very slow build up, which makes it quite different from many other of Haddix s shorter, compelling stories Because of this, I wouldn t give this book to a reluctant or struggling reader, but I would give it to a child who enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time, and I would give it to a child who had read all of Haddix s other works and was looking for a new book to read The story is interesting, but not compelling It s a solid clean read, though, so keep it on your shelves for patrons who want books without violence or language Recommended for middle gradeRed Flags mild perilOverall Rating 4

first and middle names, as well as being siblings She then leaves on a business trip , which is obviously a cover for trying to at the least protect her own kids or at the most, find and save those three Sounds cool, until I realized that this suffers from the Harry Potter adults don t tell the kids ANYthing in a misguided attempt to protect them, when the kids are going to get involved and make stupid dangerous mistakes because they don t know any better, because those who have the knowledge won t share it trope I mean, HONESTLY, wouldn t knowing the kids are connected to a parallel world to the one they are living in, the political climate, language, maps of that world and who they should and shouldn t trust on BOTH worlds, etc be handy for them to know So they could, for example, have a finely tuned stranger danger warning system and response Maybe stay under the radar and not garner attention I HATE that trope and unless the book with that trope is as good or better than Harry Potter, there is no way I will be able to tolerate it.This book is no Harry Potter.Also, this book has the Disney trope of only one parent, as the dad died when the oldest kid, now 12, was four And then, without tell the kids ANYthing, the mom goes off, with her phone set to send out automatic messages every day, until a week later when the last message was, sorry kids, I m never coming back, don t worry or try to look for me Say WHUT And YET, despite the whole, don t look for me or worry, she left ALL OF THESE CLUES for her kids to follow So which is it, don t worry, but I m skipping out on you or come and find me, despite me skipping out on you So yeah, COMPLETELY didn t like the mom skipping out on her kids plot, especially since there is no other parent.Also, the youngest child was SO ANNOYING Now, we get to see inside of his head, as each chapter alternates between all three siblings, so it kind of explained the thought process, or lack thereof, of the character and he IS only eight AND the baby of the family, used to getting laughs and all of the attention, but I was not amused At least the two older kids thought things through before acting, but the youngest one Yeah, no I m sure he was written true to life, but it didn t do anything positive for me.DNF at 172 pages, with a peek at the end to see if it was worth me finishing it It was not 2 stars because it is written well for the middle grade level, but it doesn t translate well for older than that age group Also, first of a series with a cliff hanger ending so you HAVE to read the next one to finish the whole story arc and I am done.This would be good for a voracious middle grade reader who likes big books this one clocks in around 400 or so and a continuing series Not for me, but I will recommend to customers and get copies for the kids in my life who I think would enjoy it Not against the book, but it wasn t my cuppa flag Like see review Nov 21, 2018 Jenn rated it really liked it review of
