Format: Paperback
Begins in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada's capital city. Present date.

After thirteen-year-old Matt Barnes and Sarah Sachs had their last adventure, the police kept a look out for Nadine. Thanks to Nadine, Matt's dad is still being transported to different time periods via his multiverse time machine. Since Matt's old home is no longer being watched for signs of Nadine returning, Matt and Sarah sneak inside. They hope to find a code, believed hidden by the power-hungry woman, to help free Mr. Nathan Barnes from the machine.

Later, while Matt and Sarah are at the machine, they manage to locate Mr. Barnes in Amsterdam, during World War II. Nadine's sudden appearance causes a bit of chaos for the young teens. Nadine ends up falling into the machine's open portal. Matt and Sarah follow soon afterward.

Nadine finds herself running from Nazis and ends up hiding with none other than Anne Frank! Her anger against Matt and Sarah changes to fear for her own safety. As she begins to plot out a plan for returning to her own time period, Anne's courage and attitude begins to alter Nadine's priorities.

As for Matt and Sarah, they find themselves in England. They cause quite a stir as they connect with a secret organization and make their scary way into occupied Europe. As the young teens try to locate Matt's dad, they must be sneaky, cunning, and just plain old lucky as they avoid Nazis. Can they locate Mr. Barnes before their time runs out? Can they help the brave people who are destined for a horrible fate? Will history be altered by their actions?

**** FOUR STARS! This book continues shortly after the first, The Time Meddlers, ends.

**** FOUR STARS! This book continues shortly after the first, Time Meddlers, ends. You do not have to read the first book in order to understand and enjoy this one; however, I strongly urge you to. It gives more details on the time machine and backgrounds on the teens.

As for this story, it overflows with danger, excitement, and adventure. Readers will easily connect with Matt and Sarah. As the teens sneak around, they must take risky chances, putting their lives in serious danger. An enthralling story that readers will have a difficult time putting down. ****

Format: Paperback
Time Meddlers undercover is Book two in the Time Meddlers series.
Written by a Canadian author. Thereby helping to fulfil one of my reading goals this year. Reading more of our home grown talent.

When I saw this book was going to tackle Nazi Germany, I have to admit I was a bit hesitant. But to be fair, I am with EVERY book that handles the subject. It was such a dark time in history I worry that it is either going to be too dark and I will struggle with it, or it will glaze over the subject.

Though they may be easier to read if the subject is glazed over, that is not fair to all those who suffered/died during those terrible times.

That said, Time Meddlers is a middle grade series, so I was also curious to see how the author handled the subject.

Time Meddlers Undercover, was superbly done. The author handled the subject matter with absolute grace. Information was given in age appropriate bite sized chunks for younger readers. It was also not excessively dark but it did portray the mood and times as one would expect it to be.

We follow the characters again trying to find Matt's father who is trapped in the past.
Things could not be more dangerous for them during this particular period. But they jump in determined to rescue Matt's father and see that Nadine pays for what she's done.

Except nothing is ever so cut and dry as that. Which is one of the things I really love about this series.

In Time Meddlers Undercover, we see a lot of growth happening. We see Matt and Sarah really begin to question right and wrong. We see them start to question what really happened, how Matt's father got left in the past and why.

Matt's father also begins to have a much bigger part in the series. He's not just appearing for a split second in time, leaving more questions than answers.

Nadine, where do I even start. We see her go through a couple different shifts. I'm not sure I would call them changes exactly because she really seems to waver back and fourth. With the exception of one time in history, where she goes out of her way to change one thing. Which surprises everyone.
Including me.

Kudos to the author for totally surprising me.

We also begin to see a change in the relationship between the two main characters, as well as a change in Sarah's father because of this.

This is where I had a teeny tiny gripe with this book. Sarah's father really turned into a bit of a jerk. It's one thing to be an over protective father (which as a parent I get) but I think the changes might of been drastic in this case.

I went from really liking him to disliking him in this book. Almost more than Nadine.

But it's only a small gripe. Over all it was a really well done book. I loved it.
More so than book one, which I felt was also 5 star worthy.

Time Meddlers Undercover, is a page turner that will leave you entertained, amused and maybe even a little curious to find out more about Canada's part in history.

I recommend this book to all MG readers, history buffs, time travel fanatics and adults a like.

Definitely a series I am proud to say is Canadian.
great time travel thriller 20 Jan. 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In Ottawa, thirteen year old Matt Barnes and his best friend Sarah Sachs sneak into his home hoping to find clues to where his father is. They know he is caught back in time in the multiverse. They remain alert knowing his former caretaker and lab assistant Nadine is on the run. When Nadine breaks into the house, they observe her opening a hidden safe. After she leaves, they find microfilm inside the safe. Her father tells the two kids that the library has a reader. There they see highlights from WW II in Amsterdam.

After doing some research Matt recognizes the name of a Dutch undercover Special Operations Executive (SOE) operative Johanna "Celery" Van Duizen. They disobey her dad and reenter his father's lab only Nadine follows them. They push her into the time portal in which lands her in 1942 in Nazi occupied Amsterdam. The pair follows in terms of time, but switch location to England only to run into trouble with an elite British Royal Air Force unit who ignores their warning that the SOE has a deadly fate awaiting them.

This is a great time travel thriller with a super surprising final twist. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action as Matt is obsessed with rescuing his dad lost in time and Nadine having his back end up in WW II England and Amsterdam at a key point in which the Dutch resistance is in trouble. Deborah Jackson interweaves the Dutch resistance to the German occupation especially hiding Jews like Anne Frank and her family and other targeted people from the Nazis as a key element in the strong plot. Middle school readers and anyone who read or saw the movie The Diary of Anne Frank (except Holocaust deniers) will enjoy this fine sequel to the Time Meddlers as courage is an equal opportunity trait that ignores religion, ethnic origin, age and gender.

Don't care much for "war" stories, but found Matt and Sarah's quest to find Matt's father very riveting. No blood and guts, oh okay, a little blood. The story line was very well written. I believe all young people, or young at heart, will find this an extremely good read.

This was an interesting read which seemed to keep moving. There were parts that seemed confusing but I would definitely recommend to the younger reader.
