Description: Warning: if you enjoy romantic tales about princesses dressed in pink, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!
Auggie Spinoza is a ten-year-old boy with a secret: he is a special agent who can travel through time. Now, he finds himself locked in a desperate battle against evil forces trying to change the course of history. To defeat them, Auggie must pursue a dangerous quest to find a set of mysterious clues hidden in the past.
With the help of a clever new friend and advice from a cast of famous characters with names like Jefferson, Darwin, and Plato, Auggie fights to fulfill his destiny and save his world from ruin. Along the way, he learns the importance of thinking clearly and shows the awesome power of a code-breaking, book-loving, time-traveling ten-year-old with a talent for being in the right place at the right time (and doing the right thing).
Fans of Rick Riordan, The 39 Clues, and The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel will delight in this action-packed and thought-provoking adventure through history.
Reviews: "As a middle school teacher, I'm always looking at Young Adult fiction. This story captured me from the very start - the book reminded me of the Encyclopedia Brown series - which was my favorite book series as a child. Detective stories and thrillers are always a top pull for kids, and this book is a mixture of both. The book has much to recommend it - it has time travel, code breaking, villains, and action. I was hooked from the beginning. It's a fast read for an adult, but seems just about right for a fourth, fifth, or sixth grader. I thought I'd read for a bit and then pick it up again later, but I read it straight through. I recommend this book for both kids and adults who never grew up."
