The Missing Yesterdays (The Adventures of Tremain and Christopher #1) by Terry Marchion

My review for The Missing Yesterdays by Terry Marchion, 4/5 stars.

This is a fun book for older children, with elements of Dr Who, Star Trek, and time-travelling adventures. Christopher’s Uncle Tremain is the classical ‘mad scientist’ type, mislaying his sandwiches while being able to invent all sorts of incredible machines. When Christopher goes to visit him one day, things start to go wrong when one of his uncle’s machines starts to malfunction.

Their relationship reminds me of Marty and Doc in Back to the Future – Christopher is the insecure high-school kid who tends to keep his scatter-brained uncle in line when his brilliant ideas overstep the mark, gradually finding his confidence as the adventure progresses.

The story picks up pace in the second half, with great characters who have to race against time to stop their past being erased. Kids will love trying to guess what’s happening before all is revealed towards the end.

An easy-to-read book with a story that is resolved at the end without a cliff hanger, but with the hint of the next adventure. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
