Guest review: The Time Fetch

December 13, 2013

The Time Fetch

Ryan is back with another wonderful review, this time for The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick.  He’s busy with school and basketball these days but still finds time to read.

Four kids, the oddballs Bridget and Edward, the spirit of the group Danton, and the joker Feenix make the weirdest team ever. After Edward found what he thought was a rock, but was actually a Time Fetch, a strange series of events take place. First Edward and Danton follow Feenix to the park which is unusually foggy. Feenix goes in and gets lost. After being in the cold for so long, she finds a cabin. It was a candy cabin in the middle of the woods, with only three short old witches inside.

Danton and Edward decided not to go in the park and went back to their lives. What they did not realize is that Feenix was trapped. The next day at school the classes flew by, it only felt like minutes. What came as a bigger surprise though is that no one except for Danton, Bridget, and Edward remembered Feenix at all.

After Feenix escaped, they found each other again and all they knew was that something was seriously wrong. The world seemed to be ending. Small bee looking creatures were literally eating time leaving only black nothingness. Running for their lives they try to save themselves and the world.

I think the author Amy Herrick chose and portrayed the characters very well. Some stories I could guess the ending, but not in this book. All the events mixed together very well so the story flowed nicely. I think anyone can read this book if you like fiction books. It has all the elements of a good story and I believe it would be a great book for kids of all ages.

    Great review! I’m very intrigued about the time-eating creatures. I think we have some around us, since it’s almost Christmas again, already!!!

    Ryan loves to read and this book was no exception. He got to do double duty with this review because his teacher let him use it in English class as well! Very proud of him.
