Time Tracers: The Stolen Summers

"Men in Black meets the Infinity Ring in this epic tale from the much beloved authors of the Shivers series."

Taj Carter is the kind of kid who can have the time of his life just about anywhere. He’s the class clown. The best friend. The cool big brother. That is, until his entire summer vacation disappears in the blink of an eye. Imagine going to bed on the first night of summer only to wake up the next morning and find out it’s the first day of school!

But if that seems like a total nightmare, it’s actually the least of Taj’s worries. He discovers that time doesn’t fly when you’re having fun--it gets stolen. And the time thieves are after way more than one summer break. They’re after all the fun time on earth, and Taj is the key to getting it. He has a target on his back and not a moment more to lose. It’s up to Taj to find a way to get back his summer—and to save the world from falling completely off the clock.
