" The Time Fetch is a remarkable testament to the power of true friendship and a thrilling fantasy adventure about the unseen world all around us." -- R. J. Palacio, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wonder

Edward picks up what he thinks is a rock. He doesn't know it is a sleeping Time Fetch--and touching it will release its foragers too soon and alter the entire fabric of time and space. Soon the bell rings to end class just as it has begun. Buses race down streets, too far behind schedule to stop for passengers. Buildings and sidewalks begin to disappear as the whole fabric of the universe starts to unravel. To try to stop the foragers, Edward must depend on the help of his classmates Feenix, Danton, and Brigit--whether he likes it or not. They all have touched the Fetch, and it has drawn them together in a strange and thrilling adventure. The boundaries between worlds and dimensions are blurred, and places and creatures on the other side are much like the ones they've always known--but slightly twisted, a little darker, and much more dangerous.

This book was amazing. I read it every chance I got! It was a bit slow at parts, but I haven't met a book that isn't dull at one time or another. This is a must read for people who love action, adventure, strange, complicated plots, and never ending suspense.

I'm glad I gave this one the time it took to get itself going, because the somewhat slow start builds into a well-developed story with four interesting protagonists. In the end, in fact, I was wishing the book had been a bit longer so it'd had more time to create more complexity and depth, as there didn't seem to be quite enough story to go around. Still, it was a fun and engaging adventure that saw those four characters rise to the occasion of dealing with unexpected, confusing, and fantastical danger.

This book wasn t bad but, I barely started it and could tell already that all the characters were pretty nasty and pessimistic.
