I guess the highest praise I can give a
book is when I finish it and think, "Darn! I wish I would have
been a while since I had this much fun reading a book. Really—it’s
by Berin L. Stephens was one of those books that I made time to read.
While there is a lot of action and suspense in the book, it’s still
fun and I found myself grinning each time I read.

“Time Gangsters” is a quick and
entertaining read that I’d highly recommend. The author’s vivid
imagination and quirky humor shine throughout.
What are the three things every
middle-grade reader wants? Imagination—excitement—fun.
Time Gangsters by Berin Stephens delivers each of these in spades.
Time Gangsters is a fun, fast, middle
grade read. I haven't had this much fun with a book in this genre
since I read the Percy Jackson series. It is one of those
ridiculously out there stories that you think…why could that not
have happened to my cousins and me when we were that age?!?! -Bending the Spine
my...Oh my... This book will keep a smile on your face the
whole time you are reading it. What a fun ride it was!
is a fun book for middle grade readers. It is perfect for it's target
audience. I think that both boys and girls will find this book fun to
read. It is engaging and full of imagination. -Lisaisabookworm
book about true friendship, time travel, and doing the right thing,
Time Gangsters is a book that I would recommend it to
everyone, especially if you want to share it with friends and/or
family. -Imaginary Reads

"The thing I liked most about this fantasy
novel is the author's sense of humor. Not only does he create an
interesting cast of characters, many of them familiar from childhood
stories of ogres, trolls, elves, fairies and angels as well as some new
and unusual oddities, but Jared's best friend, Doug, is so weird in a
pop culture way, I couldn't help loving him." Jennie Hansen, Meridian Magazine
