Book Review: Caught by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Caught (The Missing, #5)Caught By Margaret Peterson Haddix (The Missing #5).
Book Summary: Jonah and Katherine come face to face with Albert Einstein in the fifth book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series.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.

Cindy's Summary/Comments: I guess this is more of a comment section, since I end up spoiling the book whenever I do my summaries. LOL. If you haven't read this series, you should start on book number one, Found. The story would make more sense, obviously and it would be more interesting. 

Although these stories are a easy read, I still read them, because of it's adventures about time-travels and history. The interesting stories of famous missing kids of the past. In this book,  it was Albert Einsteins's daughter. In the other books, there was the missing granddaughter of John Smith from the Roanoke Colony. So you'll learn about the history with an interesting twist.

The time travel part can get very confusing. Especially in this book, where the future changes the past, etc. And the past meeting the future. Yeah. I got so confused. The ending of this book leaves me with a huge gasp. It isn't like a cliffhanger, or maybe it is, because i still want to read the next book in the series. You know how in a cliffhanger, there's the question, but the answer's in the next book. Well, this ending have both the question and the answer. And it ends, just like that. 

Rate: (1-10): 8.5
