Title: Redeemed (The Missing Book 8)
Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Release Date: September 8, 2015
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

“Jonah’s new twin must time travel and face off against his siblings’ worst enemy in order to save the future—and his family—in the eighth and final book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series, which Kirkus Reviews calls “plenty of fun and great for history teachers as well.” After traveling through history multiple times and finding out his original identity, Jonah thought he’d fixed everything. But some of his actions left unexpected consequences. His parents—and many other adults—are still stuck as teenagers. And now Jonah has a new sibling, an identical twin brother named Jordan. As odd as all this is for Jonah, it’s beyond confusing for Jordan. How does everyone in his family have memories of Jonah when he doesn’t? How can his annoying kid sister Katherine speak so expertly about time travel—and have people from the future treating her with respect? A few rash moves by Jordan send them all into the future—and into danger. What if he’s also the only one who can get them back to safety, once and for all?”


Even though this series is aimed for younger readers, I really like its premise. It's about a group of pre-teens who find out that they are famous missing children from history, such as Anastasia Romanov. They time travel through different time periods to set time back on its proper course. I was a bit disappointed with Book 7. In that book we finally find out who Jonah (the main character in the series) is from history. It's a complete let down and that book itself is overly complicated and tedious. Still, the series overall is pretty good and I'm excited to see how it all turns out in Book 8 - the final book in the series. Plus there's twin stuff in it and I'm always down for that.
