Nick and Eryn must figure out a way to save the world without sacrificing their newly discovered family in this follow-up to Under Their Skin, which Booklist called “crisp, intriguing, and thought-provoking” in a starred review.

In Under Their Skin, twins Nick and Eryn successfully met their new stepsiblings, Ava and Jackson. But in doing so, the twins found themselves on a mission to discover how to prevent humanity from facing certain doom.

Now, their two families are joined together to save not only themselves, but everyone—human and robotic. Can they figure out how before it’s too late?

In Over Their Heads by Ms. Haddix continues the story of Nick, Eryn, Ava, Jackson and their blended family. It is an action packed, suspenseful novel that will have readers of any age mesmerized and eager to find out what happens at the turn of each page!

While Ms. Haddix's books are targeted for children ages 8-12, they can and are enjoyed by readers of any age.  What I most enjoy about her books is not only the lively, engaging stories she creates but also the way she weaves deeper themes/social issues into her stories. These themes expose the reader to social issues that are relevant in today's world and provides the opportunity to explore and  contemplate them.  This is no small feet for any writer to do!   

I highly recommend In Over Their Heads and can't wait to read more of Ms. Haddix's writings!
