Discovering Alabama producer Roger Reid, author of acclaimed YA novels Longleaf and Space, continues the saga of teenage sleuth Jason Caldwell in his new mystery adventure, Time. Set at the Steven C. Minkin Paleozoic Footprint Site in north Alabama -- the richest source of vertebrate trackways of its age in the world -- Time is a fast-moving story that incorporates factual information about geology and paleontology 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 plucky 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.show more

Review quote

"Put a science book and a mystery story together without sacrificing either one and you have Time. The ingredient that not everyone can provide, but that Reid can really dish out, is style. So, if you know anyone between the ages of eight and 15 who likes to read, your course is clear. And if you buy Time even though you don't have a young reader to give it to? I won't tell anyone." --author of The Simian Transcript "I loved this story of young romance, mystery, and fossil-hunting! Mr. Reid has written a highly entertaining book that also teaches us some very interesting lessons on paleontology and love which turns out to be a delightful combination. Nicely paced, good characters, intriguing story. Highly recommended!" --author of Rocket Boys/October Sky and The Dinosaur Hunter "I loved Roger Reid's Time. It's another thrilling adventure starring intrepid explorers and best friends Jason and Leah, chockfull with astronomical wonders, fascinating paleontology, and a hair-raising manhunt in the Alabama wilderness. Wonderful characters, danger, and lots of humor too!" --R. A. Nelson, author of Teach Me and Throatshow more
