Adventures for kids/tweens (11-up): Time-travel for the holidays!
« on: September 03, 2012, 12:53:30 pm »
Older kids and young teens DO like to read...  as long as the story is fun.  Who says books have to be dull?

Looking for something for the hard-to-buy-for tweens and young teens on your holiday list?  Here are some adventure stories to entertain them.

Timekeepers is a series of books featuring two teens who find themselves thrown back in time to key points in history.

In A Revolutionary Tale, Kristen and Brad do what they can to tip the balance in favor of General Washington's army at a small but pivotal battle.   http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-A-Revolutionary-Tale-ebook/dp/B007COB6FK   Also available in paperback.

Saturday is supposed to be fun.  But when you have to spend it with your geeky brother... and at a battle re-enactment, no less-- what's so fun about that?

But Kristen's day goes from blah to "wha--?" when she and Brad suddenly find themselves back in time; specifically, back to the time of the battle they were to help re-enact.  There are no actors here, only real soldiers and colonials.  Kristen is glad her brother is with her, and the two of them meet a local girl, a cute boy (of course!) and British soldiers.  Toss in a spy-master and some would-be deserters and you have the makings of a very full day.

Plus, they still have to figure out how to get back home....

http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-A-Revolutionary-Tale-ebook/dp/B007COB6FK  

And Civil Disturbance finds the siblings back in 1865... at the tail end of one climactic event, and on the cusp of another.  But this time they're sent back separately.  Each has an important role to play involving famous names in American history.  http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-Civil-Disturbance-ebook/dp/B009EHRQSO/

Finally, there's a NEW book on the block!!  Good as Gold is the story of Brad and Kristen and the very first discovery of gold in North America... and it may not take place where you think!  They need to convince a man not to sell his property, so that history can unfold as it's supposed to.

    Kids, are you bummed about being back in school?  Want to unwind with a little adventure?  For ages 12 and up, a time-travel adventure to get you back in the swing of school work.  Plus, you might even learn a thing or two!!

    This book has been well-received.  Join the fun with the time-travelling teens!

    By the way, a second Timekeepers book has just been released:  Civil Disturbance.

    Timekeepers:  A Revolutionary Tale is an action/adventure in which two teens travel back in time to the midst of the Revolutionary War.  They use their wits and 21st-century gadgets to save the day...  but still have to get back to their own time.

    Timekeepers:  Civil Disturbance is the story of the same teens (plus their cousin) who again go back in time...  this time to the cusp of one of America's darkest days.

    I know a lot of young people are discouraged when looking for books (or parents, when looking for books for their kids, are discouraged).  There seems to be nothing but vampires and witches and wizards.

    How about something a little different??  Adventure that's aimed at kids aged 11 and up... time-travel and action.

    http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-A-Revolutionary-Tale-ebook/dp/B007COB6FK is the first of the Timekeepers books, in which Kristen and Brad Everheart find themselves back at the time of the Revolution.

    http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-Civil-Disturbance-ebook/dp/B009EHRQSO/ finds the Everhearts at another crucial point in the country's history, one in which they find unexpected danger.

    History has never been so fun... for the reader.   (Or so dangerous... for the characters.)    8)    8)

    Please note the cover/link of the 2nd Timekeepers book in my signature.  Timekeepers:  Civil Disturbance.  A little bit anarchy, a little bit "peaceful resistance."

    If you're on the East coast, prepare for superstorm Sandy...  get those flashlights, lanterns, and candles ready.  The best way to pass the time when the weather is bad (or the power is out) is to read.  And kids aged 11-14 would appreciate an adventure book to keep them entertained.

    Thank heavens the election is over, and now the holidays are just around the corner!!  A good time to read, and to think about gifts for the young people in our lives.

    Timekeepers would be a great answer for both.

    "History is supposed to be dull.  Who knew it could also be dangerous??"

    Yes, I guess it's official, and the holiday frenzy has begun.  For those with middle-grade or young-teen readers on your gift list, it's not always easy to find a suitable item.

    Are the kids on your list getting e-readers for the holidays?  Here's a unique way to give them a gift they can enjoy more than once:  books about kids who are probably pretty much like them, having a fantastic adventure.

    Great idea:  If you're buying an e-reader for a young person in your life, why not pre-load it with some reading that he/she might like?

    The Timekeepers books can easily fit the bill.

    Another week, another crazy winter storm to deal with!!  Now is a great time for everyone to sit down with a good book.  Kids aged 11-14 might get a kick out a fun time-travel adventure.

    Timekeepers is a series of books featuring two teens who find themselves thrown back in time to key points in history.

    In A Revolutionary Tale, Kristen and Brad do what they can to tip the balance in favor of General Washington's army at a small but pivotal battle.   http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-A-Revolutionary-Tale-ebook/dp/B007COB6FK

    And Civil Disturbance finds the siblings back in 1865...  but this time they're sent back separately.  Each has an important role to play involving famous names in American history.  http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-Civil-Disturbance-ebook/dp/B009EHRQSO/     ***See new cover in signature, below.***  Also, Civil Disturbance will be available in paperback in a few weeks! ***

    I know a lot of young people are discouraged when looking for books (or parents, when looking for books for their kids, are discouraged).  There seems to be nothing but vampires and witches and wizards.

    How about something a little different??  Adventure that's aimed at kids aged 11 and up... time-travel and action.

    http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-A-Revolutionary-Tale-ebook/dp/B007COB6FK is the first of the Timekeepers books, in which Kristen and Brad Everheart find themselves back at the time of the Revolution.

    http://www.amazon.com/Timekeepers-Civil-Disturbance-ebook/dp/B009EHRQSO/ finds the Everhearts at another crucial point in the country's history, one in which they find unexpected danger.

    Timekeepers:  A Revolutionary Tale, and Timekeepers:  Civil Disturbance.....   both available in paperback as well!
