TITLE: The Adventures of Finn Farrow and the Infallible Time Travelers
GENRE: MG - Science Fiction
Finn Farrow always thought his dad was crazy until he inherited the silver comb. He could now Leap Behind and explore ancient worlds. With the help of his new friends, Finn quickly learns how dangerous time travel can be.
Finn Farrow opened the bottom drawer of the dresser, pulled out a stack of jeans and threw them into his duffel bag. He glanced at Bags, sitting on his bed, playing with his phone. His friend preferred to wear a Greek toga, just in case he could squeeze in a quick trip to Ancient Greece, but today he was dressed like an ordinary kid, jeans, a tee shirt and flip-flops.
“Are you packed?” Finn asked.
Bags grinned and said, “Yep. Three togas, a toothbrush and my Leap Behind. I’m ready to go!”
Both were both tall for fourteen, just under six feet. Bags had a thin frame with brown wavy hair, brown eyes and a crooked smile. He was outgoing and very popular. Finn was fair with serious green eyes. They were more than roommates, they were best friends, and they were time travelers.
Finn continued to pack, emptying his closet and checking under his bed for any wayward socks. He couldn’t believe his freshman year at Whispering Pines was over. In some ways he was glad, he really wanted to go home and see his dad.
I’m not going to time travel this summer. At least not until I know dad is okay. Finn pulled out the silver comb in his back pocket and turned it over in his hands several times. If I comb my hair, would my Leap Behind take me back to Egypt? Would King Tut still be dead?
