Bought this book and the first from the series for my kids. When they were a lot younger one of our favorite series was called The Magic Treehouse books by Mary Pope Osbourne. In those books a boy and his sister are magically transported to different historical places around the world to witness important historical events. Great series for younger kids for the books are age appropriately short but exciting (and you learn something too). This series, by Haddix kicks it up a notch for middle school kids. Book 2 takes us to 15th century England where the reader is introduced to the real historical mystery of the two princes who were locked in the tower of London. The series explores the missing children of history and what their stories ultimately may have been besides the grisly supposed ends these poor kids suffered. I am anticipating where the third book will take us (the lost Virginian colony).
