"Beautifully illustrated, wonderfully crafted, the story leaps from the pages faster than you can turn them. Pull down the safety bar and sit tight: you're in for a ride." --Ridley Pearson, author of the Kingdom Keepers series

Writer Bryan Q. Miller is best known for his work on TV's Arrow andSmallville (The CW), and DC Comics' Teen Titans and Batgirl comics, both of which were fan favorites. Bryan has also written several Spider-Man stories for Marvel Press.
Fan-favorite and best-selling artist Kelley Jones is widely known for his acclaimed run on DC Comics' Batman, which helped inspire Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

Gr 3–7—By winning a contest, space cadets Stella and Tommy are lucky enough to go on a time traveling expedition at Space Mountain, an orbiting facility that experiments with time travel. But their routine trip to exactly 24 hours into the future gets sabotaged, and they end up changing the past for the worst. Now under arrest for tampering with the future, Stella and Tommy must somehow go back into the past to save the future. Loosely based on the Disney Park roller coaster of the same name, this fast-paced adventure is short on exposition and rationale but big on thrills and excitement. The illustrations are a blast from the past, complete with 1970s retro-futuristic wardrobes and Flash Gordon—style rockets. Kids may not understand the various nods to the genre, but it's a nice touch nonetheless. Jones's usual gritty art style can be seen in the shadowy figures and details of the various robots but is mostly overshadowed by cartoony characters that match the feel of this over-the-top escapade. Young fans of TV's Doctor Who may be willing to give this one a try.—Peter Blenski, Greenfield Public Library, WI
