9780062274625: Saving Lucas Biggs

Perfect for fans of Margaret Peterson Haddix, When You Reach Me, and Savvy, this charming time-travel story from husband-and-wife team Marisa de los Santos and David Teague follows one girl's race to change the past in order to save her father's future.

Thirteen-year-old Margaret knows her father is innocent, but that doesn't stop the cruel Judge Biggs from sentencing him to death. Margaret is determined to save her dad, even if it means using her family's secret—and forbidden—ability to time travel. With the help of her best friend, Charlie, and his grandpa Josh, Margaret goes back to a time when Judge Biggs was a young boy and tries to prevent the chain of events that transformed him into a corrupt, jaded man. But with the forces of history working against her, will Margaret be able to change the past? Or will she be pushed back to a present in which her father is still doomed?

Told in alternating voices between Margaret and Josh, this heartwarming story shows that sometimes the forces of good need a little extra help to triumph over the forces of evil.

Review:

“This book is hard to put down! Vivid and memorable, SAVING LUCAS BIGGS casts a captivating spell that will keep you turning pages. A heartfelt yarn of family, friendship, and homespun time–travel magic.” (Ingrid Law, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of SAVVY)

“A riveting time–travel adventure. Strong storytelling, suspense, lyrical writing, high drama, weighty matters made accessible and a bit of humor add up to a terrific and heartwarming read.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“The authors weave a tale of justice and family bonds with threads of historical fiction accented with the fantastical physics of time travel.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

De los Santos and Teague craft a gentle, quiet sci–fi story where the focus is not on the science…love, nonviolence, and social justice are. Give this one to readers who like stories about family, doing the right thing, and standing up to those who don’t. (Booklist)

“The authors’ graceful use of language and fearless exploration of a more spiritual dimension simultaneously comfort and challenge readers, encouraging deep thoughts. This novel makes a good companion for armchair time travelers and budding philosophers alike.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

From the Back Cover:

To save her father's future, she'll have to change the past.

When the cruel Judge Biggs wrongfully convicts Margaret's dad of a crime he didn't commit, Margaret is determined to do something, even if it means using her family's secret— and forbidden—ability to time travel to save her dad.

With the help of her best friend, Charlie, and his grandpa Josh, Margaret jumps back in time to stop the chain of events that turned Lucas Biggs into the corrupt and jaded man who sentenced her dad. But the rules of time travel are strict, and the forces of history resist Margaret's attempts to alter the past. Margaret is running out of chances before she will be pushed back to the present, where her father is doomed, and where, without Judge Biggs's help, Margaret will lose her father forever.
