I was lucky enough to be able to read a copy of Kate Ristau’s “Clockbreakers”…before everyone else! Hee hee! 🙂 You are all going to love this new series (YES, that is an epic MINOTAUR on the cover!!) and it comes out in just a few weeks!!
On her eleventh birthday, Charlie receives a key to go back in time. But before she blows out her candles, she rolls her wheelchair right into Ancient Greece with her best friend Maria and her former best friend Trent. She’s a Clockbreaker on an action-packed adventure with a mission: to save her father, and perhaps even save the world.
A wonderful adventure for both kids and adults that you will NOT be able to put down! (I had many a night where I told myself just five more pages!) The heroine, Charlie, is a witty young girl who, like every eleven-year-old, wants everyone to stop treating her like a child. When she and her friends are thrust into adventure, Charlie rises to the occasion despite the challenges in her way. Ristau does an amazing job of weaving Greek mythology into this story, leaving the reader (like myself!) curious to know more. Clockbreakers will play out like a movie in your head…and I’m ready for the sequel!
Basically…get ready to be hooked!
