Hott Synopsis

What does one do with teens that just insist on wreaking havoc and causing chaos wherever they may go?

BN | Amazon | GR | Author

Well, in the year 2347 they send the rebellious teens to history camp. This way they’re less likely to repeat the mistakes of the past.

But when a group of three teens and a wayward genie push the limits of even the most harsh history camp and manage to actually get sent back to Verona, Italy in the year 1347 even they begin to see life in a new light. Now, if they can only learn the value of work, perseverance, and humility they might just live through this.

Hott Review

I took a lot to get me into this book but once I was there I was stuck. There was so very much background info and set-up that for a while there it seemed like the adventure would never arrive but for the patient – this book truly pays off. When the story rolled around I was so captivated by the teens that I just could not let go even for a few moments – even getting coffee on a chilly morning seemed like too much time away.

I had planned on giving this series to my 10 year old for Christmas but there is no way he’s patient enough to make it through the background, however, I think this is perfect for my 13 yr old son. There are some areas that I felt would be a bit too much for my younger son but that I know my niece of the same age would love. Overall, I’d say that if your child loves to read they’ll definitely love this book but if not – then wait for the movie…. yes, I’m really hoping for a movie version of this one – it’d be SO MUCH FUN!
