With so many outstanding options available for librarians, book acquisition can be challenging. Time Travel Mysteries are written by a former classroom teacher/school principal and are intended to entice and engage even the most reticent readers. With page turning suspense, these novels tackle topics that intrigue today’s young adults such as hoarding, tagging, and peer pressure. Each novel is carefully researched and includes a detailed study guide with differentiated questions and activities designed to develop thinking skills and promote a better understanding of targeted eras in time. Thematic projects are also listed for further involvement by the reader.
