What would you do if you had to spend a long boring summer at your Uncle’s house out in the countryside?
  That is just what happens to Rachel and Ben Corder.  And if things weren’t already boring enough, the TV blows up and it seems like it will never stop raining!  But all of a sudden, the rain stops and the sun comes out.    Rachel and Ben explore the gardens – and what do they find?
An underground shelter buried long ago.  Inside the shelter they find rooms and supplies -- canned food and stacks and stacks of toilet paper!  But these things are old fashioned looking.   Then they step into the next room.  It feels cold.  They notice two torpedo- like tubes.   Rachel screams!  There is a body within each tube!  One is a girl and one is a boy.    Eventually they discover that the two children are cryogenically frozen and were supposed to be that way for a short time only.   But it is now more than 50 years later and Freddy and Polly wake up to find a very strange and new world.  “Frozen in Time” is an action- packed adventure full of mystery and many humorous moments you will not want to put down.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2011-2012)
