"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Timeby Roger Reid due out January 1, 2011 from NewSouth Books.
Discovering Alabama producer Roger Reid, author of acclaimed young-adult novels Longleaf and Space, continues the saga of teenage sleuth Jason Caldwell in his new mystery adventure, Time. Set at the Stephen C. Minkin Paleozoic Footprint Site in Northern Alabama--the most prolific source of vertebrate trackways of its age in the world--Time is a fast-moving story that incorporates factual information about geology and evolution into its intriguing tale of suspicion and pursuit. This witty and educational book will captivate middle-school readers of all ages. In Time, Jason is reunited with his friend Leah from Longleaf, with whom he again solves a mystery and survives danger. Leah is as smart and pluck a tomboy as ever, but Jason can't help noticing this time that she's also an attractive girl. Are they friends or boy-girl friends? They aren't sure, but readers will recognize a teen romance even if the principals don't. The engaging story combines intelligence, courage, and insight with scientific facts and exciting adventure.
