Torn (The Missing Book 4) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
This is the 4th book in The Missing series. It follows 13 year old Jonah and his sister Katherine as they travel back in time to 1611 to repair problems there due to Second, a rogue time traveler.
They land on Henry Hudson's ship looking for the northwest passage, and since John Hudson is missing, Jonah fills in for him, complete with a handy Elucidator provided disguise. Despite the sabotage, mutiny, and murder on the high seas, Jonah and Katherine manage once again to save the day - and all of time, from Second's nefarious plans.
The accuracy of the historical research helps to lend a realistic twist to this time traveling adventure.
I enjoyed it and highly recommend it
