The award-winning action-adventure trilogy The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone begins here. When her school is attacked by time-traveling Pug-Nasties, 12-year-old Molly fights back. Aided by the mysterious Veronica T. Boone, she jumps through time herself to stop the Nasties where they began, in Chicago in 1893. But the Nasties and their evil leader give chase, and now Molly and Veronica are on the run- decades before they were born!With adventure, friendship, dramatic chases, narrow escapes, exotic travel, tornadoes, Presidents of the United States, millionaires, gangsters, bootleggers, monsters, and one helpful but ornery African dwarf mongoose, The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone is a heart-pounding race through the 20th Century, a race Molly can't afford to lose. The winners will save history - while the losers will vanish forever...Teachers and students alike have acclaimed The Untimely Journey series as a fun, exciting, and educational reading adventure. Positive and optimistic, it takes the characters into American history and introduces the reader to real people of the times. From the 1950s where Molly and Veronica cross paths with President Harry Truman, to the 1920s where bootleggers mistake them them for whiskey-smuggling spies, to 1907 where they shake down bankers for a million dollars to save one of America's most famous companies, the two girls are thrust into real events and learn why they happened. This is a wonderful read for adventure fans both young and old.
About the Author
D. M. Sears lives and writes in Virginia. He is a pilot who has written several books about flying under the name Michael Bleriot and now three books for younger readers. The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone was born when his niece requested an adventure story for a 12-year-old girl, one that included trains, horses, and Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. She said it should also include the history of America, "but only the interesting parts."
