More About The Left Behinds by David Potter
 
 
 
Overview
Percy Jackson fans will embrace this humorous time travel adventure, the first in a series, about an iPhone malfunction that sends three kids back to 1776 in time to rescue George Washington.

On Christmas Day, Mel finds General George Washington lying dead as a doornail in a stable. But Mel knows that George Washington must cross the Delaware River, or the course of American history will be changed forever.

Could Mel's iPhone have sent him back in time to 1776? And can Mel and his schoolmates, know-it-all Bev and laid-back Brandon, come to the rescue? Perhaps, with a little help from two colonial kids and Benjamin Franklin himself.

Debut novelist David Potter cleverly combines time travel, humor, and American history in this fast-paced adventure. For American Revolution enthusiasts, there's information about historical reenactments, additional reading, and websites.

Praise for THE LEFT BEHINDS: THE IPHONE THAT SAVED GEORGE WASHINGTON
"Sequel, anyone? Let's hope so, because the concept of bringing an iPhone into the past is just too cool to stop at one episode... This is Magic Tree House all grown up, and kids who once loved that time travel conceit will be delighted all over again." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A skillful blend of humor, history, mystery, and adventure makes for a fun, fast-paced tale that will leave readers a little wiser." -School Library Journal

"History and humor collide." -Booklist

"A new twist on time travel." -Kirkus Reviews
