Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Published Date: 1 March 2016
“Seventy-two hours, then we have to be back at the clearing. Sunrise on the third day.”
“the home-schooled girl” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling
phobias and photographic memory don’t endear her to her dad's perfectly
blond, very Southern family. When her mother is killed in a natural
disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world implodes.
After being shipped off to an aunt she's never met, Hope learns there's
more to her mother's "death" than she ever dreamed. At her aunt's manor,
high in the Scottish Highlands, Hope begins to unravel the shocking
truth about her family. Her mom isn't just a brilliant academic. She’s a
member of a secret society of time travelers, and is currently trapped
in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of
Aquitaine. To stage a rescue, the sheltered teen must join the Indiana
Jones-wannabe team of time-jumpers, before her mother is lost for good.
In a brutal, medieval world, Hope will discover more family secrets, and
a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free…or the
very key to Hope’s undoing.
Addictive and rich with historical detail, INTO THE DIM (Coming Spring 2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is an unlikely heroine's story of adventure, sacrifice, and first love, in a high stakes race against time itself. (summary from Goodreads)
The only bad thing about this one is that it won't be released until March next year! Oh, the waiting!
