MAGIC IN THE MIX takes this series about twins with a special gift for time travel to an even more considered, heartfelt place. Here, Miri and Molly return to 1935 to see the mother and father Molly never knew, travel to 1910 and to Virginia during the Civil War, and meet characters from their past at different points in their histories. They're both smart, headstrong, curious characters who inspire readers to think more deeply about their own environments and history. There's a bit of danger and some scenes of mild verbal abuse, but overall, this is a rewarding, clever book about the nature of time, relationships, love, and what it means to shape your own destiny.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
