The Jewel and the Key
August 29, 2011
An earthquake and the discovery of a mysterious antique mirror unleash forces that jolt sixteen-year-old Addie McNeal back to 1917 Seattle, just as the United States is entering World War I. Addie finds herself shuttling back and forth between past and present, drawn in both times to the grand Jewel Theater. In both decades the existence of the Jewel is threatened and war is looming . . . and someone she cares about is determined to fight.
Eventually, Addie realizes that only she has the key to saving the Jewel—and the lives of her friends. But will she figure out how to manipulate the intricately woven threads of time and truly set things right?
Alright, I'm kinda sitting on the fence with this one, as GoodReads and Amazon contradict on publishing dates (GoodReads claims it's already been released for a month, and Amazon is requesting pre-orders). Eh, I'll go with the book distributors. I think they know what they're talking about.
In any case, I am loving all these stories about time travel recently. Historical fiction with just the right dash of contemporary - now that's what I'm talking about.
(By the way, this title also features on the wish-list I am currently whipping up for this month's RAK. Just saying...)
