I really like this series. It's about the missing children from history. Haddix taps into a common childhood fantasy- that you are really the offspring of royalty or famous people, and were somehow adopted by an ordinary family, then she one-ups it by adding in time travel. People can travel back in time to fix time or discover histories mysteries. Time travel is the only way to completely solve some mysteries. And if we could travel back in time to begin solving all the mysteries of history, how could we resist wanting to save all the victims? This is a great premise and creates a page turner for kids (and adults too)! The mystery in this book revolves around what happened to 12 yr old King Edward V and his younger brother Richard when they went missing in 1483 just before Edward's coronation.
