When Margaret OíMalleyís
father is framed for murder and sentenced to death, she
is prepared to do anything to prove his innocence.
Thanks to her family inheritance, the ability to time
travel, she feels certain she can discover and then
change the beginning of the problem. However, she is
more than a little surprised to find that in order to
save her father, she must first save Lucas Biggs, the
judge who sentenced him to death. (Booktalk by the Louisiana
Young Readers' Choice Committee)
Teenager Margaret and
her family have a special ability that they vow never to
use. They can time travel. Margaretís father warns her
that the consequences of using this ability are too
severe to ever try. However, Margaretís father became a
whistleblower against a big business, and now he has
been convicted of arson and murder, crimes he did not
commit. One of the men responsible for her fatherís
injustice is the evil and corrupt Judge Biggs. Now
Margaret, with the help of her best friend Charlie and
his Grandpa Joshua, is going back in time to try to
prevent Judge Biggs from becoming evil and, hopefully,
to keep Margaretís father out of prison. Will Margaret
be able to save Judge Biggs and her father? Find out in
