User Summary: After riding in your uncle's high-speed race car, you find yourself transported to 1915 where your name is Jamie and you have a different uncle with a different race car.
Demian's Thoughts: The two Stines seem to have a good sense of how to make gamebooks that stand out. This isn't as silly as their earlier entry in this series, but it is fairly creative and different. I can't help wondering about the mysterious connection between uncles and time travel that seems to exist in interactive fiction....
