Jump Out of Time into History
Teen genius and Leonardo da Vinci-wannabe Charley Morton adapts modern technology to travel to 1492 Florence, where her illuminated “slate” reveals magic powers. Hunted for witchcraft, she must either divulge secrets that will change history or be burned for heresy and, worse, miss winning her school science fair.

Learning through Story

March 8, I think

Dear Billy, Lex & Beth,
News Flash: proved time travel possible. Florence is beautiful in 1492 but, OMG, stinky! Must organize a trash pickup. Learning from Maestro da Vinci himself. If only we can figure out how to fast-forward time to take me home. Leonardo also interested in visiting future. Would that change history?
Wish you were here!
Love, Charley
