Waiting to Read Wednesday: A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner

There are a ton of fabulous MG books out there and there's quite a few that are spilling over on my bookcases. I thought it would be fun to switch things up a bit and feature books that I've got on my shelves that are Waiting to be Read. 

Today's feature is: Infinity Ring, Book #1 A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner

I am so excited about this new series from Scholastic! Six well known authors will each be writing one of the books in this series. 

About the series:

History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right!

When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel - a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring - they're swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course.

Now it's up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks . . . and to save Dak's missing parents while they're at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!

Each book comes packaged with a full-color, collectible Hystorian's Guide - your key to unlocking an all-new online adventure starring Dak, Sera, and Riq. You'll need all of the Guide's hints, secrets, and codes to navigate the richly immersive worlds of Revolutionary Paris and other soon-to-be-revealed locations in a totally unique, story-driven gaming experience.

Set to be released on August 28th, book #1, Infinity Ring is written by James Dashner will be kicking off this exciting series. You can Pre-Order this book now from: Scholastic | Amazon |  Barnes & Noble   

Book #2, Divide & Conquer by Carrie Ryan will be out on November 28th, 2012. I received A Mutiny in Time this week in the mail and I am so excited to be featuring it on Mundie Kids in the coming weeks. In the mean time, I highly recommend visiting Scholastic's site to learn more about this thrilling series for MG readers.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
