Saving Lucas Biggs

Thirteen-year-old Margaret knows her father is innocent, but that doesn't stop the cruel Judge Biggs from sentencing him to death. Margaret is determined to save her dad, even if it means using her family's secret—and forbidden—ability to time travel. With the help of her best friend, Charlie, and his grandpa Josh, Margaret goes back to a time when Judge Biggs was a young boy and tries to prevent the chain of events that transformed him into a corrupt, jaded man. But with the forces of history working against her, will Margaret be able to change the past? Or will she be pushed back to a present in which her father is still doomed? 

Told in alternating voices between Margaret and Josh, this heartwarming story shows that sometimes the forces of good need a little extra help to triumph over the forces of evil. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

Saving Lucas Biggs is a powerful story of how friends should stick together even through the most difficult times. Margaret needs to stay with Charlie and Josh through both time periods and maybe she would get the affection back. Lucas Biggs was full of hatred and only one thing from his past experiences could change his feelings for the rest of his life.

Using love to overcome hatred is a very strong way to fix many problems, but I think this author has made an impact on me by showing how love is very strong and powerful. I would give this five stars and I would recommend this book to people who like deep stories that have different twists to it.

This book is one of my favorites and I think that the people who could understand it should get to read it. Thank you, Marisa De Los Santos and David Teague, for writing such a wonderful book!
