History buffs and Sherlock Holmes fans especially will enjoy this time-travel adventure. Younger readers may find Mira less relatable as she starts to separate emotionally from her mother, and excitement takes more of a back seat to Mira's process of discovering what her life and time-travel abilities are all about. But tweens will root for Mira as she uncovers more of the time-travel mystery, struggles to show her independence, and discovers her ability to control her future.

Author Marissa Moss continues to bring pivotal world events to life in an imaginative and lively manner, with lots of telling details and an engaging, believable narrator. She also provides a story that will interest kids as a straight-up, time-travel adventure while providing lots of food for thought to kids who are ready to engage in the larger world.
