Now Available: Twerp in Time: Missing! Lost City of Gold - James and Livia Reasoner

Dennis Fletcher has a problem...or two. He's extra-smart, and even though he's skipped a grade, he's still bigger than a lot of the older kids! Making friends is hard--and something he wants more than anything. When he invites two of his classmates over to work on a group project, they suddenly find themselves in the middle of Coronado's Conquistadors--and Dennis's execution is slated only a few days away! How did they travel back in time to the 1500's? And how are they going to get back to their own time before Dennis meets his end? The pouch of special powder around his neck contains the answers--if only he can figure out how to use it to save them all and get them home to Texas--500 years in the future!

(I think this is a pretty entertaining book for kids--or for old geezers who never grew up, like me.)

I loved this story. It was really different, and even as an adult it was entertaining and fun to read. I'm hoping maybe you and Livia will be able to write some more of these--they are GREAT for Middle Grade readers, and what a fantastic way to teach kids history while entertaining them!
