I read this one and the first one in not even 2 days. It was so interesting and kept me reading all day long. It was a fairly easy read because of the spaces between the lines of the words, but thats ok, i loved this book and cant wait to get the 3rd book!

This book was just so absorbing! Something about it made me just not want to put it down and just the other night, before I knew it, it was 12:30! The Time Twister has all the elements a good book should have, a climax, good dialoge, a concluding ending, and that little sigature unique touch of the author. Even though this is all so true, this isn't Jenny Nimo's best work, so if you read this and like it , make sure to read the rest of the series and some of Nimo's other works!

Summary: Charlie Bone is at Bloor¿s Academy, when he finds out that his cousin, Henry Yewbeam was sent twisting through time to the present year from 1916. His evil cousin, Ezekiel, sent him twisting through time. A magic marble has the power to send anything and anyone back or forward in time. All you have to do is look at it, and that is how poor Henry became stuck in the wrong year. He suddenly appears in Bloor¿s Academy in one of the creepy hallways. When Ezekiel finds out that Henry isn¿t gone forever, he is furious, and wants to get rid of him for good. The Yewbeam aunts are pressuring Charlie to tell them where Henry has been hiding, but Charlie refuses to tell. Henry isn¿t safe at Bloor¿s Academy, because there is danger lurking around every corner. Henry finds a for sure safe place to hide, but he blows it when he ventures off, and is caught. He is brought to Ezekiel Bloor, where he is then sent off to die in a pit outside in the ruins. When Henry is thrown down in the pits, a huge rock is placed on top of the hole, leaving only a little crack for air, and a little bit or bread to eat. Will Henry ever get out of the hole before Ezekiel decides to make him truly be gone for good? I really liked how the book picked up pace right away. Jenny Nimmo did a great job at keeping the readers interested at all points. She really has done a fine job at not beating around the bush, and getting to the point, but she also did describe everything really well, so that you could picture it in your head, without over exaggerating. This book is the second book in a series of five, and you can¿t read them out of order. This book would fit both boys and girls, and the series is sort of similar to the Harry Potter series because of the magical powers, the endowed, and the special school.

The first book was great. Midnight is a very enjoyable read and it kept me busy while waiting for Order of the Poenix to be released. The plot is good and the characters are interesting. And even though it was a great book and I can't wait for the sequel, everyone knows that Harry Potter has no competition here!

Charlie Bone and the Time Twister is a thrilling sequel to Jenny Nimmo's roaring success in Midnight for Charlie Bone. In this book Charlie meets one of his ancestors, named Henry, who has been whisked to the future by his evil cousin. When he arrives in the present Henry meets Charlie, and together they try to find a way to bring Henry back to the past. But they are up against Henry's evil cousin, who has grown to an evil old man by the time Henry is in the future. Charlie finally manages a way to get Henry back almost far enough. Yet since Henry couldn't return to precisely his own time, he goes on to be raised by his younger brother. This makes an exciting book with constant twists and turns in the second novel in the Children of The Red King series.
