I like the way that this could happen in real life one day when we invent something that can time travel. It would be a cool posibility but we would still miss our families. I like the suspense in the book and the choices the twins make.

I liked this book, but not as much as the two others I read by Madeline Engle,
A Wrinkle in Time and the Swiftly Tilting Planet. It just didn't seem as interesting, and the characters didn't seem as real.

A touch of the computer keys, a blast of heat, and suddenly the Murry twins, Sandy and Dennys, are gasping in a shimmering desert. If only the brothers had normal parents, not scientist mother and father who experiments with travel in space and time. If only the twins had noticed the note on the door of their mother's lab: EXPERIMENT IN PROGRESS. PLEASE KEEP OUT. But it is to late for regrets, now they are on their way to find magical things in this new world.
