Landing aboard Henry Hudson’s ship in James Bay just before a mutiny, Jonah and Katherine struggle to survive brutal weather conditions. They also realize something is wrong. A crucial person has vanished, and the history they remember is drastically different from what they’re experiencing. Will this new version of history replace the real past?

Travel is a part of my life. It makes me an avid audio reader.
I recommend the book with one warning. Up the speed on your app to 1.5 times normal speed. The story is good, but the narrator DRAGS!
The most memorable moment was when you realize time has been split into two different dimensions.
SLOW, That's all!
NO! I had to listen to the the first half before I realized you could speed up the narration.
I am hoping to find out who Jonah is in the next book, or I may give up on the series.
I am giving up on the Missing series. The storyline has gotten way too confusing and boring. I also don't think I can put up with Chris Sorenson's sing-song puppet show voice. He pauses for 1-3 seconds after EVERY sentence. That is a lot of dead space. A waste of valuable listening time. I do like most of Haddix's books. This one just isn't working for me.
(Please note that this is a young adult book and I am an old adult, so take that into consideration when reading my review. It might be perfectly enticing to an 11- year-old.)
