Information about the author.
This classic work of science fiction is widely considered to be the ultimate time-travel novel. When Daniel Eakins inherits a time machine, he soon realizes that he has enormous power to shape the course of history. He can foil terrorists, prevent assassinations, or just make some fast money at the racetrack. And if he doesn’t like the results of the change, he can simply go back in time and talk himself out of making it! But Dan soon finds that there are limits to his powers and forces beyond his control.
A trip to the Moon? Sounds like the perfect family vacation. Only for 13-year-old Charles “Chigger” Dingillian his family is anything but perfect. His parents fight so much they put the ‘dis’ into dysfunctional. So when he and his brothers find themselves halfway to the Moon Chigger hits on a plan: if his parents can’t find a way to work things out, why not just divorce them? Sound crazy? Until it works.
Charles and his brothers are on their own. But their bid for freedom hits a roadblock when Chigger suspects they are targets of an interstellar manhunt. What do these Big Corporations want? And why?
Their only hope is to jump off the planet…
Having escaped both an Earth on the verge of global collapse and their squabbling parents in a “divorce” at Geosynchronous Station, a newly independent Charles and his two brothers find themselves alone on the Moon with very few prospects. Worse, they are being hunted by ruthless interplanetary corporations who would stop at nothing to come in possession of a memory bar the boys smuggled on board. Can they make it on their own? Who can they trust?
Charles thought the moon would be a new beginning. He will be lucky just to stay alive.
