Pump Up Your Book Presents Untimed Virtual Book Publicity Tour
This YA time travel novel will also be enjoyed by adults. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I would suggest that before you hand it over to your YA you read it-there are portions that you might not want your child reading depending on their sophistication level. I would have no trouble handing it over, but then, we are all different. Some of the scenes are a tiny bit risqué.
The story revolves around Charlie, a young boy who is being raised by his normal Mom and his mostly missing but when he is there his not so normal but loving father. Unfortunately Charlie takes after his father but is never told what this entails. He falls into (literally) a time hole and meets a young girl (with a baby) just like him—The Clockwork men are forever trying to do away with the duo but through trial and error Charlie and Yvaine prevail. Of course they do make a couple of mistakes and alter history—but they go back and try to rectify these errors. Good ol’ Dad and Aunt Sophie to the rescue—Thank heavens!!

From the back of the book:
Charlie's the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, his own mother can't remember his name. So when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don't take him seriously. Still, this isn't all bad. Who needs school when you can learn about history first hand, like from Ben Franklin himself. And there's this girl... Yvaine... another time traveler. All good. Except for the rules: boys only travel into the past and girls only into the future. And the baggage: Yvaine's got a baby boy and more than her share of ex-boyfriends. Still, even if they screw up history - like accidentally let the founding father be killed - they can just time travel and fix it, right? But the future they return to is nothing like Charlie remembers. To set things right, he and his scrappy new girlfriend will have to race across the centuries, battling murderous machines from the future, jealous lovers, reluctant parents, and time itself.
This book can be purchased at Amazon and Barnes & Nobel
