From the Publisher:

After traveling through history multiple times and finding out his original identity, Jonah thought he’d fixed everything. But some of his actions left unexpected consequences. His parents—and many other adults—are still stuck as teenagers. And now Jonah has a new sibling, an identical twin brother named Jordan.

As odd as all this is for Jonah, it’s beyond confusing for Jordan. How does everyone in his family have memories of Jonah when he doesn’t? How can his annoying kid sister Katherine speak so expertly about time travel—and have people from the future treating her with respect? A few rash moves by Jordan send them all into the future—and into danger. What if he’s also the only one who can get them back to safety, once and for all?

Why this book? 

I've been reading The Missing series with my kids for several years. We have enjoyed it and on more than one occasion it's sparked one conversation that has led to another and another (a true sign of a good book)!

This series has time travel, history all wrapped up in a great story. I can't wait to read the final conclusion to this series!

I should share that technically this series is targeted for middle school age children but it is so well written, I believe that it can be enjoyed by anyone who loves time travel and history! 

What books are you waiting to read?
