Overview

The Adventure Begins....

When Theodore Pine Four suddenly appears in the bedroom of Genevieve Corrigan just as her friend Jules Santorini is about to ask her out on a date, the only thing they can all agree on is that it is highly unordinary. Things get even more complicated when we find out that Theo is a teenager from the year Fourteen Billion and Seventy-Three with multicolored hair, a talking coat, and the hottest new time machine on the market: the TimeMaster JumpMan Pro. And little do they know that this chance encounter is going to kick-start an epic adventure -- one that will take Jules, Gen, and Theo through history, from the Big Bang all the way up to 14,000,000,073 and everywhere in between. Along the way, our heroes are going to have to figure out how to get Theo and his malfunctioning time machine back home without undoing the fabric of time itself. And, if he's lucky, Jules might just manage to ask Gen on that date.

    In the early Fifteenth Billenium, everyone has the ability to "jump" to any time in history they please, but with one rule: don't touch anything. <BR/><BR/>When Theodore Pine Four wins a worldwide contest, he is thrilled! He is the first person ever to try the new JumpMan and jump to the winners' secret location. When Theodore jumps with the new JumpMan, he leaves the Fifteenth Billenium...and never returns! <BR/><BR/>Over to do his homework with his crush, Gen, Jules Santorini is very nervous. He is going to ask Gen out on a date. Just as he is ready and summons enough courage, another boy appears in the bedroom! This boy has multicolored hair, wears weird clothes, and has strange items along with him such as a silver sphere and a red remote. <BR/><BR/>When TimeJumpers jump they usually appear invisible to the people at that time. This time, however, Theodore goes to Mil 3 (aka The Present), a place where he is not invisible. He has jumped into Gen's bedroom right when Jules has decided to ask the question. <BR/><BR/>Theodore's JumpMan is malfunctioning and cannot return him to his own time. After convincing Jules and Gen he is from the future and can jump through time, they begin an adventure. The three travel through time from when the first word was spoken up until the present. <BR/><BR/>No one knows how to fix the JumpMan and no one is looking for Theodore in the future. Not being invisible while in a different time is against the first rule. Will time slowly unravel? <BR/><BR/>I enjoyed reading the authors, "Before we Begin..." which was in the front of the book. James Valentine brings up many good points about time and how it functions. It made me think about what would happen if I did a certain thing and the consequences. This was a good book, and others who read it will want to get the second one in the series, THE PRESENT NEVER HAPPENS.
