Winner of Blue Peter's Book That I Couldn't Put Down and Book of the Year Award 2010.

Frozen in Time by Ali Sparkes, a British children’s books author, is an intriguing mystery novel that's based in Britain. It’s about boy named Ben and a girl named Rachel who thought this summer would be the most boring summer ever until they find the vault. Inside this hidden vault they find Freddy and Polly their great aunt and uncle who had been suspended in time for 54 years. Freddy and Polly were put in the vault in 1956 and find it a bit shocking when they’re told it’s 2010. Will they find out what happened to Polly’s and Freddy’s father? And more importantly why and who is chasing them down?

My Review

I liked this story a lot, at first I thought it was just like any other story but by the end I couldn’t put it down. The book just got better and better! This book is amazing I would definitely recommend it to a friend. I would love to read more books by her, because when I first saw the list on her website I thought, “These look awesome”! The characters that she wrote about are so relatable and they seem like they could be my friends or neighbors or even family. Sparkes makes the story it seem as if your living it out with them, every step of the way.
