    " This book is the second in the Charlie Bone series. I enjoyed the first book, so I decided to read this one. It is about Charlie Bone, a kid who can speak to photographs. He goes to a special school that is for gifted students. He meets a relative who was transported through time by the Time Twister, which looks like a marble, but can make people travel through time. I enjoyed this book. I recommend it to those who enjoy fantasy, or who read the first book in the series. It is an interesting read, and as good as the first book. "

    " Daniel again loves the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley St. Pierre | 2/3/2014

    " creepy and wierd but good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse Mcwhirk | 2/3/2014

    " This book made me happy and optomistic. It allowed me to escape reality and forget my troubles, becoming fully immersed in Charlie Bones instead. The two things a good book should do "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffiny | 1/31/2014

    " My son and I listened to this one - we probably should have started at the beginning of the series. It was a little confusing, lots of characters to keep track of, some of them kind of creepy, but interesting plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anisha | 1/28/2014

    " like the other books in this series, i really don't remember the plotline. it's been a while since i read them, and this wasn't one of the books that i really remember that well...but i do remember it being a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/20/2014

    " The kids', especially the boys, are really into these books. They are very much on their level - meaning 2nd-4th grade and they can't wait to start book 3. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gwyn | 1/16/2014

    " Disappointed in weak characters, plot development, weak writing altogether. Overall series plot painfully obvious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Yuen | 1/14/2014

    " I found this book a bit boring because it took a long time to get into the interesting part, but once you got into the middle of the book, you wouldn't be able to stop reading it. When I read this book, I had to reread some parts of the book over again because it sometimes didn't really make sense. This book is also very creative at the same time because it had magical powers and things that wouldn't really happen in real life. This book would be good for people that are interested in fantasy and have a big imagination because this book contains a lot of that. Also if you enjoy this book, you should continue to read the next book that follows it, so you can continue the adventure of Charlie Bone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/13/2014

    " My review for this book is the same for the first Charlie Bone book.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/5/2014

    " An OK continuation of the series but I didn't like it quite as much as the first book. There were also some holes in the time travel story line. I will most likely continue with the series because I do like the characters and most of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/5/2014

    " I like the plot but the writing is too sparse. I would love more details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carly | 2/9/2013

    " I remember reading this book and being so scared about the sorcerer in the picture I set it down and didn't read it months. You have to give me some though because it could be very scary to a fifth grader! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miriam | 12/30/2012

    " I would have to say this is my least favorite Charlie Bone book, but I can't specifically put my finger on why this is. I found the subject to not be as interesting as the rest. Charlie does not seem to grow as a person very much. There is not much excitement, either. "

    " I bought this book for 50 cents at a thrift store, without having read the first book in the series or having even heard of it before. Basically, likeable characters but short on plot. Harry Potter knockoff! "
