Summary
When Jonah and Katherine travel to early 1900s Switzerland and Serbia to return Albert Einstein's daughter, Lieserl, to history, her mother Mileva grasps entirely too much about time travel and has no intention of letting her daughter go.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When an anomaly causes time to freeze, middle-school siblings and seasoned time-travelers Jonah and Katherine are sucked back to 1903 and into the lives of Albert Einstein and his first wife, Mileva, who is torn between knowing about technology that will save her sick child and revealing too much of the future to the man whose theories eventually make time travel imaginable. This fifth entry in the Missing series brings back the familiar main characters and concerns about fixing time, but definitely includes more science (a plus for STEM book lists). It also includes a plotline about the social stigma of a child born out of wedlock in the early twentieth century, which creates some confusion about the author's intended audience. Haddix provides fascinating information about Mileva Einstein and the as-yet-unresolved mysteries surrounding her first child, while her author's note responsibly distinguishes historical fact from fiction.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist"
