Redeemed by Margaret Peterson Haddix (Lexile: 730; Interest Level: Grades 3-6) is the remarkable conclusion to The Missing series! I couldn't wait to start reading this last book, but then it took awhile to read it because I didn't really want the adventure to end.
Jordan Skidmore comes downstairs one morning to find that there is a boy in his house who looks just like him. And his sister seems to know this other guy! Then his parents turn back into teenagers! What a weird day! And it was about to get even weirder as people enter his kitchen and start talking about time travel with the look-alike kid, whose name turns out to be Jonah, and is apparently Jordan's twin brother.
In an effort to try to make sense out of the crazy that is going on in his kitchen, and perhaps a little out of jealousy over Jonah's confidence and authority, Jordan steals an elucidator and takes himself, Jonah, and Katherine on a trip through time before he even knows what he is doing. Can Jordan now learn enough about time travel and his family's multi-dimensional history to save his parents and his siblings as well as Time itself? Tune into this great story (after reading the rest of the series) to find out! (406 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
