Time travel to Victorian era London, the Golden Age of Hollywood, and a Tokyo lab a whole millennium into the future might sound like a fairy tale life. But time traveling teen Kayla Wayman discovers that when the time stream holds her fate in its finicky grasp, it feels more like a nightmare.
Wanting desperately to prove to her mom that she’s grown up, she breaks the rules and time jumps alone. But a simple misstep throws her miles and decades away from her intended destination. Now she’s tumbling from city to city, through different time periods, directionless and afraid. Kayla must learn to master time and believe in herself, or she may never find her way home.
This first collaborative novel from the makers of Story Sprouts is a tale of big adventure, second chances, and the power of a family’s love. Included in this volume are valuable extras for young writers and classroom discussions.
