Going, Going, Gone by Nicholas O. Time is about a group of middle school friends named Matt, Luis, and Grace who have a very mysterious library teacher named Valerie Tremt. She gives them a book called The Book Of Mysteries, which seems like a normal book, but it's just blank pages. The kids figure out that it is a time traveling book. Put in the time and place and...you're there. They all go back to 1951 to help Matt's grandpa become a major league player, but they only have 3 hours to do it. Can Matt and the team make his grandpa's dream come true and get back in time so they don't get stuck in the past?

Opinion: 

In my opinion, Going, Going, Gone was a good book. One thing I liked about it was that it had a lot of unexpected twists and turns. It also has a good plot and a great introduction of characters. My favorite character was Luis because he was a bit of a rebel, but he was also spontaneous and fun. The author also did a good job having the events of the past line up with the future after the group changed them. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the ending was dragged out a bit. But overall, I would recommend this book to others.
