Another interesting and funny book about Johnny, a very ordinary and slighly daft kid. The book gets a bit muddled in the whole time-travel mire, but doesn't get as hopelessly bound up and ruined like the Time-Travelers (Gideon) series. The characters are rounded out a bit more, which is interesting. The story is fast enough and simple enough to be a solid and non-committed, entertaining distraction. The semi-romantic interest is back in this one, and the ending presents a very nice, ambiguous strengthening to their friendship, which is very refreshing compared to all the books where the protagonist and love interest have to end up completely together at the end.
