by K.M. Topping

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Fifteen year-old lacrosse player Hunter Crispian, his absurdly smart little sister, Tilly, and his quirky best friend, Chase are sailing to the Bahamas on a family vacation. "It will be the adventure of a lifetime," Hunter's dad promises. Talk about an understatement. Caught in a strange and sudden storm in the Bermuda Triangle, Mr. And Mrs. Crispian vanish into thin air and the three children are transported back to the year 1711, smack into the middle of a conflict between two Native American tribes. When the tribal chiefs declare a "Tewaarathon," or lacrosse game known as "Little Brother of War," Hunter and Chase soon learn that this will be no ordinary lacrosse game. In a contest without pads or helmets, rules or referees, the stakes are high. Win and the children shall go free. Lose and Hunter will die.

About the author
K.M. Topping fell in love with novels about time travel when she first read Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, T.H. White's The Once and Future King and Jack Finney's Time and Again. Eight years later, the author fell in love with the sport of lacrosse when she witnessed her first game at University of Virginia. Many years and several careers later, she finally got around to writing about two of her favorite things. K.M. Topping, together with her incredible family and slightly deranged dog, moved from New York City to South Florida so that they can spend more time getting lost in the Bermuda Triangle.
