The main character is very very ditsy and blond though she isn't ~ this is portrayed in everything she does, nothing seems to go as planned for her. Her family has moved to a new home where she meets new friends and new challenges. She is visited by time travelers and they need her help to get back home. Much humor is intertwined in this book while the time travelers use gadgets that have gone wacky and you never know what might happen next. Plans are changed as they use these gadgets when they don't get the outcome they were seeking. While there is much mayhem and laughter throughout the book the characters learn what is truly means to be kind, patient, loving and honest in all things. My teen daughter and I have enjoyed reading this book as a read-a-loud.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
