Gus can’t imagine anything worse than moving to another city to live with his grandfather — until things go even more haywire, and he becomes a target for the school bully. Then, while working on his family history assignment, he discovers a small box of unusual objects that mysteriously catapult him back in time. Now he has even bigger problems. If he can survive the harrowing events of the past, will he succeed in making new friends in the present?
