After helping Chip and Alex survive 15th-century London, Jonah and Katherine are summoned to help another missing child, Andrea, face her fate. Andrea is really Virginia Dare, from the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Jonah and Katherine are confident in their ability to help Andrea fix history, but when their journey goes dangerously awry, they realize that they may be in over their heads: They've landed in the wrong time period. Andrea doesn't seem that interested in leaving the past. And even worse, it appears that someone has deliberately sabotaged their mission....

Excerpts-
  • From the book

    Jonah fidgeted in his seat, and his chair fidgeted right along with him. In another mood, Jonah would have been fascinated by this--how was the chair programmed? Did it have a computer chip making it squirm? But right now Jonah was too distracted. He was sitting in a sterile, nearly empty room, waiting to travel back in time to an unknown era and unknown dangers. So all he could do was fidget.

    You'd think, with time travel, there wouldn't have to be any waiting, he thought grumpily.

    Beside him, his eleven-year-old sister, Katherine, bounced in her chair--making the chair bounce too--and chattered away to Andrea, the third kid who would be going to the past with them. Indeed, Andrea was the most important time traveler that day. She was the reason they were all going.

    "Don't worry," Katherine told Andrea. "You don't have to hold your breath or anything to travel through time. It's easy."

    "That's good," Andrea said softly. She sat perfectly still, and so did her chair. She had her eyes focused on the blank wall across from her and barely seemed to be paying attention to Katherine. Normally Jonah would have approved of that--he tried to ignore his younger sister as much as possible too. But unlike Katherine and Jonah, Andrea had never traveled to the past before. She didn't know what time period she was going to, or what she'd have to do there. Shouldn't she be asking questions? Shouldn't she at least act like she cared?

    "Only, if you get time sick, that's no fun," Katherine rambled on, flipping her blond ponytail over her shoulder. "When we went back to 1483 with Chip and Alex, I thought I was going to throw up for sure. And I felt really dizzy, and--"

    "Katherine!" Jonah interrupted, because he could put up with Katherine's babbling for only so long. "Andrea won't get time sick like you did. Remember? She's going back to her proper time. Where she belongs. So she'll feel good."

    At that, Andrea's whole face brightened.

    Wow, Jonah thought. She's really pretty. He honestly hadn't noticed before. Of course, he barely knew Andrea. The first time he'd met her, there'd been thirty-four other kids around, and four grown-ups fighting about what was going to happen to the kids, and people being Tasered and tied up and zapped back in time . . . Jonah had had a good excuse for not looking closely. All he remembered from that first meeting was that Andrea had worn her long brown hair in two braids, and she hadn't screamed and panicked like a lot of the other kids. And he guessed he knew that--like him and the other kids the grown-ups were fighting over--Andrea was thirteen years old, and she was a missing child from history, one who had been stolen from her proper time and place by baby smugglers. One who had to go back, to save history.

    Suddenly Jonah really wanted to remind Andrea that he and Katherine had already proved that they could save history and save missing kids, all at once, even when the time experts thought it was impossible. They'd managed to save Chip and Alex from the 1480s, hadn't they? Jonah started to smile back at Andrea and was working up what he wanted to say to her: something suave but casual and not too conceited-sounding . . . . Did, Don't be scared. I'll take care of you sound stupid?

    Katherine began talking again before Jonah had a chance to say anything.

    "Andrea can too get time sick," Katherine argued. "Not the kind from being in the wrong time period, but the kind just from traveling through time. Remember JB thought I had both kinds? And that's why I felt so awful? And . . ."

    Katherine broke off because the door opened just then and JB, the very person she'd been talking about, stepped...

    Gr 5–9—-his volume picks up immediately where book two left off, with Jonah, Katherine, and Andrea going to the time period when Andrea was kidnapped. She is Virginia Dare, the first English child to be born in the ill-fated Roanoke Colony. During their time journey, the Elucidator is lost, and the children arrive not certain as to where or "when"they are. Jonah pieces together that Andrea deliberately lost the Elucidator, and she admits she was following the directive of a mystery man who promised that she could stop her 21st-century parents from dying in a car crash if she did what he said. Unsure of what they've been sent back to do, the children decide to try to find the inhabitants of the colony. Along the way they save the life of Andrea's 16th-century grandfather, and she feels more and more that she is supposed to stay with him. Familiarity with the first two books is a must, and even then, this story is somewhat confusing. The integration of background material is not consistently clear, so unless readers have studied the history of the Roanoke Colony, they may not understand what is going on. This plodding novel is plot driven; there is little character development and there are no new hints as to Jonah's historical identity. Readers are told that the group will next go into the 17th century, but they may not have the patience to follow.—"Cheri Dobbs, Detroit Country Day Middle School, Beverly Hills, MI"
