Time Zone Series

Chase is a typical teenager making his way through high school: spending time with friends, averting disastrous encounters with bullies, and trying to devote quality time to family. But Chase comes from a family that is anything but typical, and he soon finds out that his life will be anything but conventional. One day an ordinary visit to his prominent scientist grandfather turns extraordinary, as both grandfather and grandson get sucked into a time portal that jets them back to pivotal events in U.S. history. His encounters with bullies are nothing compared to what will come next, where Chase will have to fight for his life while carving out a space for himself in history alongside some of the most celebrated historical figures.
