Wow! I read this in grade 5 and frankly, now, I find it hard to believe this was written by Haddix. I mean, she really specializes in creating horrific scenes with her writing, but none of that is here. But for me that is actually a good thing, since horror stories, well, freak me out. This story, rather, is about ethics. I don't want to go into too much detail, because I don't want to give away the story's big plot twist - but it is a good read, definitely not a waste of time.

I absolutely loved this book when I was younger. It's one of the few books I've actually reread and still enjoyed as an adult.

When diphtheria starts raging through her village, Jessie's mother informs her that it is actually 1995--not 1840--and her village is actually a world-known tourist attraction. Her mother sends her to the outside world of 1995 to seek medical help for the dying children. Jessie wants nothing more than to help her neighbors back in her village, but what happens when everything in 1995 is too confusing and unfamiliar for Jessie to take? Will she be able to get the medical help she needs in time? Or will she get lost in the maze of futuristic technology? What about this Mr. Nelson? How will she absorb all of this so quickly?
