Caught

Caught by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
 The Missing, book five.
 
Caught (The Missing, #5)Summary: Jonah and Katherine are accustomed to traveling through time, but when learn they next have to return Albert Einstein’s daughter to history, they think it’s a joke—they’ve only heard of his sons. But it turns out that Albert Einstein really did have a daughter, Lieserl, whose 1902 birth and subsequent disappearance was shrouded in mystery. Lieserl was presumed to have died of scarlet fever as an infant. But when Jonah and Katherine return to the early 1900s to fix history, one of Lieserl’s parents seems to understand entirely too much about time travel and what Jonah and Katherine are doing. It’s not Lieserl’s father, either—it’s her mother, Mileva. And Mileva has no intention of letting her daughter disappear. (taken from Goodreads)

My thoughts:This was a really educational book (although with a good bit of excitement, mystery and adventure too!), really enjoyable for the history buff hidden away in me and was probably my favorite of the Missing series. The first is a close second though. This one just had all the right elements it seemed. There was an equal amount of everything a good book needs. Margaret Peterson Haddix is a really good author and this is one of her best! I really felt like I was living the story with the characters and I was up late reading to finish it. I can hardly wait for the next book in this series, it's getting way to exciting! I would recommend to guys and gals tween aged and younger teens. Those who like science fiction, history and time travel should enjoy it. And the time travel stuff isn't too complicated (thank goodness) either.
My favorite character:I really liked Einstein's wife, Mileva. She was really strong and you really end up loving, liking and admiring her by the end of the book.
My stars:4.5
Love, Sierra
