As if traveling to a new country in search of her missing mother weren't difficult enough, Mira has to do it dressed as a boy. In a different century.

A new postcard from her time-traveling mother points Mira to the 16th century Rome. But before she can rescue her mom, she must follow the clues left around the city to find Giordano Bruno, a famous thinker and mathematician, who discovered something so shocking that important Italian officials don't want it revealed. All the while avoiding the Watchers--time-traveling police who want Mira back in her own time.

It's another whirlwind adventure for Mira, and this time she is determined to bring her mother out of the past.

This book is awesome!! I have never read a book about time travel and now I love time traveling books. It's really descriptive and I like the questions that Mira brings up that really makes you ask yourself how or why. I recommend it to anyone who likes history, mystery and time traveling.

I have loved the Amelia Diaries by Marissa Moss since the first one came out in 1995. Those are more authentic because they look like they are hand-written. Mira's diary involves time travel with philosophical discussions about science and religion.
