Reviews

"Kids are going to enjoy this fast-paced, sometimes funny and always heartfelt, adventure that blurs science fiction with history. George and Gracie are heroes for the ages--past and present. Can they save their parents? Only time will tell." --Kathy Appelt, Newbery Honor winner of The Underneath

The Just in Time series by Cheri Pray Earl & Carol Lynch Williams are short, believable tales that move along quickly with generous doses of suspense and action. Perfect for Common Core curriculums, students will find themselves quickly enveloped in page turning narratives. A history treat for sure! Carla Morris, Provo City Library"
