    I decided to check out the e-book version of this series for my kiddos before purchasing paperback versions... and I loved them! I was laughing out loud and totally impressed with the wittiness of the series (not something I've seen much in this age group). I'm not sure about the reviewer who thought this book wouldn't appeal to middle schoolers---I'm a widely-read 35 year old and I got some GREAT entertainment value out of this book! The main character is cute, has a crush like any other middle schooler, faces problems like other kids her age (and then some--I mean who hangs out with time travelers?!), and she's always thinking and saying hilarious and witty things that make me giggle. The boy characters in this book are a couple of silly nuts. I loved the book from the start and knew I had to purchase the entire paperback series for my kids. I really, really like that this book is so entertaining and I can't wait to read the rest of the series... not to mention give them to my kids!

    New Kid Catastrophes is hilarious. I literally laughed out loud during the lunch table scene. Poor TJ! This book completely silly and wacky. But, oh so fun.

    5 stars.

    TJ has just moved to California and is trying to get adjusted to her surroundings and new school which is easier said then done. Two time travelers have arrived and won't leave her alone. They are trying to help her learn to look past people's outward appearance but their help isn't always appreciated.

    New Kid Catastrophes 1, TJ and the Time Stumblers, is adorable.

    This goof-troop of time-traveling kids kept me engaged and amused. Kids will easily relate to these silly, charming, magical characters (TJ, Tuna, and Herby) and the dilemmas they face (being the new kid/outsider.) I do have to say though—I feel this book should be geared toward grade school readers rather than teens.

    Everything about this book is original. I, an adult, enjoyed this first Time Stumblers tale and recommend it for young readers. A good, clean, fun, engaging read.

    Changing schools in middle school or junior high can be scary, when 13-year-old TJ Finkelstein transfers from Missouri to Malibu Junior High, everything that can go wrong, does. As two teenage time travelers, Herby and Tuna, try to intervene, TJ immediately alienates the most popular girl in the school, movie star, Hesper Breakaheart, while resisting the friendship of the class geek. Her attraction to the class smoot also gets her into one mess after another. And her time traveling guardians, Herby and Tuna's continual bungling—accidentally changing people into weird objects and animals—goes from complicated to outrageous, placing TJ into a hole she may never escape.

    The author uses slapstick humor, hyperbole and two teenage time travelers to help TJ through the transition and she learns a lesson about favoritism along the way. Although primarily aimed at middle school girls this book should also appeal to boys with nonstop action and great humor.
