Run Out Of Time And Into Strange Lands. . .

Strange Lands header

 

Whether we're wasting it, traveling through it or trying to stop it, Time is an ever elusive, fascinating mystery. It has also inspired many great tales, including the featured picks for this month.

For the romantics out there, Timekeeper, the sequel to the Timeless, combines romance and complex time-traveling magic in a story that will have every reader believing in the transcendent power of love.

Or do you yearn for a place where time stands still? Welcome to Hokey Pokey, a place and a time when childhood is at its best: games to play, bikes to ride, experiences to be had. Nothing changes in Hokey Pokey, until the day that everything does for one boy named Jack.

Until next time, Strange Landers.

When Philip Walker appears as a new student in Michele Windsor's high school class, she is floored. He is the love she thought she lost forever when they said goodbye during her time travels last century. Overjoyed that they can resume the relationship they had a lifetime ago, Michele eagerly approaches him and discovers the unthinkable: he doesn't remember her. In fact, he doesn't seem to remember anything about the Philip Walker of 1910.

Michele then finds her father's journals, which tell stories of his time-traveling past. As she digs deeper, she learns about his entanglement with a mysterious and powerful organization called the Time Society and his dealings with a vengeful Windsor ancestor. Michele soon finds herself at the center of a rift over 120 years in the making, one whose resolution will have life-or-death consequences.

fall's biggest titles


There are no adults in Hokey Pokey, just kids, and the laws governing Hokey Pokey are simple and finite. But when one of the biggest kids, Jack, has his beloved bike stolen—and by a girl, no less—his entire world, and the world of Hokey Pokey, turns to chaos. Without his bike, Jack feels like everything has started to go wrong. He feels different, not like himself, and he knows something is about to change. And even more troubling he alone hears a faint train whistle. But that's impossible: every kid knows there no trains in Hokey Pokey, only tracks.

Master storyteller Jerry Spinelli has written a dizzingly inventive fable of growing up and letting go, of leaving childhood and its imagination play behind for the more dazzling adventures of adolescence, and of learning to accept not only the sunny part of day, but the unwelcome arrival of night, as well.
