Immediately thrown into the adventure, A Pair of Docks offers a different kind of time-travel story. Compelling characters, danger and mystery drive the story forward. Even as an adult, I found plenty to enjoy throughout the story. I immediately connected with Abbey who was always trying to frame things through the lens of the scientific method. It was refreshing to see a character who didn't just accept that they had time traveled, but tried to figure out how and why it could happen using her current knowledge. Another amazing character is Mark, the Sinclair's neighbor. Mark has Aspergur's syndrome, he is integral to the story and the sibling's success. I liked the overall mystery of the stones and the ties to each of the character's futures, the reveal wasn't what I was expecting. My only complaint was that there were chronically absent parents, although there were explanations given and they stepped in towards the end.
