Frozen in Time

It’s 1956. Freddy and Polly have always known their father is a genius. So they’ve never minded helping with his experiments – even when that means going into cryonic suspension, having their hearts frozen until their father wakes them up again. It’ll only be for an hour or two. There’s nothing to worry about. But in 2009, during a long, boring summer, Ben and Rachel find the hidden underground vault in the garden – and two frozen figures, a boy and a girl. As if that isn’t spooky enough, when Rachel presses a button, something unbelievable happens…

Can Polly and Freddy adapt to 21st century life? Will their bodies survive having been in suspension for so long? And most important of all, what happened to their father? Why did he leave them frozen in time?

    This is my favourite book ever!

    I think the plot is amazing. At the start, it was normal, and quite boring. But I read on, and it got more and more exciting. When I got about 3/4 of the way through, I couldn’t put it down!

    I really recommend this book to anyone who loves a good read.
