Fatechanger: Penny Found is the second installment in the Fatechanger series by L. M. Poplin. Fifteen-year-old Penelope Clark (Penn) realizes she must once again travel back to the year 1916 in search of her missing father and to make amends for her old friend, Fin. However, after her arrival in Boston, her former friends aren't too keen to forgive her for her disappearance for more than a year. As she tries to delve into her father's secrets and correct the wrongs of her ancestors, Penn unwittingly embroils herself in a sinister conspiracy involving blackmail and betrayal that will test her resolve and morals to the limit. To further complicate matters, her quest will put her at a crossroads with a dangerous nemesis known as the Ghost, and his familiar Shadow, with whom Penn has a history.
A captivating tale about friendship and making amends featuring time travel, Fatechanger is a rollercoaster ride you don't want to end. Containing well-fleshed-out characters with layers of depth and a plot that keeps surprising you with its unexpected twists, turns, and reveals, L. M. Poplin's adventure odyssey entertains you from start to finish. Despite the relatively lighter tone, something about the narrative reminded me of The Lies of Locke Lamora; akin to Scott Lynch's novel, young adult characters are thrown into situations and events that have far-reaching consequences. I found Poplin's humor to my liking and thoroughly enjoyed the crisp and quick-witted dialogue throughout. Overall, Fatechanger is a must-read for young adult adventure lovers.
