Margaret and Josh are only 13 but they are facing some serious issues. In order to help save her father, Margaret must investigate the past. And this past is not a perfect paradise. Margaret must face issues of unjust decisions and unnecessary deaths- even murder- both in the past and in her present.
Margaret is a lovable character and easy to relate to. Margaret's friend, Charlie, is a friend everyone could hope for. He is supportive and stands by her side through every obstacle she has to face.
The story is told through three different perspectives over a long period of time. Marisa de los Santos' writing flows from one perspective to another flawlessly. Her wording creates such a vivid image in the reader's mind it truly feels like a movie. Each voice is distinct and all voices are believable- from the voice of Margaret, present/past Charlie, and Josh. She brings the characters to life and are relatable and realistic no matter what age the reader is.
Saving Lucas Biggs has a fantastic plot, unexpected twists, and great insight into to morals of people and what they must do to make things right. I recommend this book to readers both young and old. Overall a fantastic read with great characters, a great setting, and a great concept! Love time travel.
