Nick of Time
Well, first blog of the new year...better late than never! Found a book with a beautiful cover in the juvie section of the library yesterday. I was immediately drawn to the design, then the subject matter-Time travel...and then the boy in the boat. I can't wait to delve into this and imagine our young hero as none other than our young Jon. :D
Though he could easily pass for a young Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Does that man EVER age?? Good for him! I am sure Jon would have been the same way.)
I will get back to the Voyagers book blog very soon. I just have a lot of projects sidetracking me, but good things...and now it's topped off with a stomach flu. : x
*Added note: The first chapter is thrilling! Nick is a twelve-year old boy who lives in the lighthouse with his mother, father and little sister Katie. Right from the first page he's adrift with a storm about to blow upon him and his dog in his little boat...and he's ready to crash into huge black rocks that guard the lighthouse, where many worthy sea men had died. Nick is very adept at sea for his age, so I'm sure he'll make it... or there will be no story!
And wouldn't you know it? His best friend is named...Gunner! (For those not sure of that reference, Jon's older brother is named 'Gunnar.') However, Gunner is an old tavern keeper here.
Also of interest, this story involves secret messages to Winston Churchill...hmm..sounds like part of the plot to one of the un-aired Voyagers! scripts... 'Remember the Alamo'
I love making these connections, even if they are coincidental!
