I loved this middle grade time travel book! I loved McKinley and her family and friends. I especially loved that she got to meet her dad when he was her age.

Lots of nods to previous time travel tales in the YA world. I liked McKinley a lot and enjoyed her adventures in the past where she gets the chance to see her parents (and other adults in her life) when they were just her age. Nice resolutions.

It's 2018 in Gap Bend, Pennsylvania, and McKinley is preparing her costume for the annual Time Hop: this year, they're celebrating 1993. But then McKinley's system-obsessed father, William, says she can't go to the fashion show because she has to stay home with Grandma Bev, when McKinley knows she can handle it all just fine - she McKinley and Grandma Bev go to the Time Hop. But McKinley's dad shows up and there's a big scene; McKinley runs to the bathroom, and 1993. When realization dawns, she searches for her best friend Meg's mom Jackie, who told her she can come to her for help any time.

Over the course of a week in 1993, McKinley gets to know the 12-year-old versions of Jackie, Jackie's future husband Ron, and "Billy" (William), all while trying to avoid cranky Mr. Jones - who, Jackie discovers, traveled back in time himself. In fact, Jackie's research turns up several potential time travelers in their town. McKinley wrestles with the idea of change: Will her actions in the past change the future (her present)? Can she change other people, or herself? McKinley is especially worried about Meg: they fought right before McKinley time traveled to 1993, and McKinley is scared that her actions in 1993 will somehow erase Meg from 2018. When McKinley does return from 1993's 1930s-themed Time Hop, she and adult Jackie debrief on the way to Meg's FACTS competition.

A perfectly executed middle grade time travel book. Each chapter title references a 1990s song (A Playlist for 1993).

Very cute story. Told from the main character, a boy with a learning disability. I think students could learn a lot from in on how to treat others. I learned a lot from it as well. Hearing his interpretation of things his teachers and parents said and did was very insightful. A good reminder that all children are special. A little easy for 7th graders, but good for 3rd-6th.
