Pete, Abby and Jon have just returned from Pearl Harbor hoping to end their summer by lazing about, but luck isn’t on their side.
It’s been a week since the teens' last adventure, and they’re starting to notice small differences in their lives. From a cryptic phone call to less than 50 stars on the American Flag, the friends discover that the Mississippi River now separates the U.S. and the Soviet Union!
Wishing their lives would go back to normal, the three teens travel back to the 1940’s to change history's path. But it turns out things aren’t going to be as easy as they thought. With time running out, will Pete, Abby and Jon save the U.S.? Or will Mother Russia rule them all?
This was not one of my favorite books. I feel like there weren't enough details to imagine the scene, like there was bubble glass blocking my view. I also felt the story moved too fast. It quickly jumped from one action scene to the next. Although the characters felt real at times, they also seemed see through.
My favorite part had to be when Olaf and Yuri ditched Vallentina; it was hilarious! I thought it was really cool that I live close to this author, and that the story started in this area. This is the second book in a series, so I would recommend reading the first book because the beginning of this one was a little confusing. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers, action lovers and sci-fi lovers.
