TimeRiders

Written by Alex Scarrow

Three Teenagers. Three different time periods. What do they have in common? They were all supposed to die. Instead of dying, the three people are saved by a mysterious man who sends then forward in time to September 10 and 11, 2001. The people of 2001 have been traumatized by the events of the World Trade Center and aren’t completely aware. For this reason, Maddy, Liam, and Sal live these two days over and over again trying to prevent people from accidentally time traveling, a practice banned by people in charge of time. When an evil villain decides to go back in time to when Hitler was losing World War II, he changes the course of time. Now it is up to our three heroes to save time and prevent a rift in the space time continuum from occurring. Will they succeed?

A fast-paced, action-filled adventure. The characters are well-developed. The historical facts are well-implemented and accurate. Readers who like science fiction, adventure, action, and history will enjoy reading this book.
