The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick


The foragers are only supposed to collect time that will not be missed and then wait until the Keeper calls them home.  But when Emmett accidentally releases them, they quickly get out of control and time starts disappearing.  Can Emmett, Feenix, Brigit, and Dalton, an unlikely quartet, figure out what is going on and against all odds save time from disappearing altogether?

This was a really interesting book.  It had elements of fairy tales (gingerbread house), fantasy (a time fetch from another world), ancient lore (stories about the winter solstice), and adventure.  I was a little confused by the ending.  The foragers ate a lot of time and things disappeared all over the place but when Brigit was able to call the foragers back everything went back to normal.  That seemed a bit odd to me…no consequences.  Other than that, I enjoyed it.
