Time Gangsters is a timeless read that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. The story begins when Billy wakes up in the middle of the night to find who he believes to be a gangster in his room. From there, the story takes off as he makes a truce with his cousin Danny (short for Danielle), whom he's been pulling pranks on forever, and a search for treasure leads them and his friend Wheezy into a conflict bridging time.

Billy is a reckless youth who believes he is capable of anything. While he finds himself scared for his life a couple of times, he seeks adventures and is annoyed by Danny's attempts to tell him that they should tell an adult. Danny is the voice of reason and even looks the part, as her recent growth spurt makes her look more sixteen than twelve. Wheezy is the dorky friend, who Billy brings into the plot for his brains.

Soon, they realize that they are up against a crime lord who wants to take over the United States with the ancient Egyptian "coins" and their magical abilities. There is plenty of adventure, magic, and humor. There is even a hint of romance in a dashing young drummer for the most mature member of the gang. I love the ending and how it brings the story together, even if it may not bring about a fully satisfying ending for a couple.

A book about true friendship, time travel, and doing the right thing, Time Gangsters is a book that I would recommend it to everyone, especially if you want to share it with friends and/or family.
