Synopses & Reviews
On her eleventh birthday, Charlie receives a magic key to go back in time. But before she blows out her candles, Charlie rolls her wheelchair into Ancient Greece with her best friend Maria and her former best friend Trent. She's a Clockbreaker, stuck in a Greek myth, on an action-packed adventure with a mission: to save her father, and perhaps even save the world.
"Yes, it's a time travel book, but it's also a heart travel book, a book about friendship, forgiveness, courage, and the powers waiting to be discovered in each one of us." Kathleen Lane, author of The Best Worst Thing
"Clockbreakers gets started quickly and doesn't let up! Twists and surprises around every corner (literally!) and a diverse cast of characters, both human and not." Teresa Klepinger, author of Cliffhanger Writing Prompts
"Ristau does an amazing job of weaving Greek mythology into this story, leaving the reader (like myself!) curious to know more. Clockbreakers will play out like a movie in your head." Erin Ritch, author of Myth
