My last review for 2019.

This book reminds me of a cozy mystery, but for younger readers. But this one has a twist. Time travel. I saw that mentioned in the blurb and instantly grabbed a copy. The two main characters, Grace and Jack, are right for each other. Nerds through and through. And there's nothing wrong with being a nerd. I'm a bit of one myself, so I guess that's why I related to them, regardless of the age difference.

I'm not much good at science, and to be frank, I have no idea if the

Another middle school series I can tell I'm going to have a great time with! This time it's a sci fi adventure, emphasis on the science. There's good banter, suspense, a mystery, and just the right amount of shenanigans. The setting is especially strong, a small east coast island community, complete with small shops, transportation woes, and creaky wooden floorboards. It's a fascinating ride all around!

Part of this for me was nostalgia. Grace's eighth-grade mindset is eerily similar to my own at

The Case Of The Toxic River, A Miller's Island Mystery by Cindy Cipriano..
This was a fun mystery with a time travel twist! Loved how the story kept walking through the science to solve the mystery. The audio version was well done and enjoyable to listen too.

Might be spelled wrong, but thanks to introducing a new idea to an old man. This book is a great read about time travel and cause and effect. I look forward to the further adventures of Jack and Grace, on Miller's Island.

Here is a nice teen-age story of new girl meets boy and they hit it off by their mutual interest in physics and time travel. Who knew that their innocent add would send them to the past and somewhere else?

Good story.

Cindy Cipriano lives in North Carolina with her husband, son and their 27 pets.

Not really.

Just two dogs who think they are children and three cats who think they are raccoons. It only seems as if they make 27. When Cindy isn't writing, she enjoys spending time with her family and the avoidance of cooking.
