While visiting her uncle over summer vacation Delia Bean follows a kiwi bird into the woods and discovers the Earth Time Museum.  It’s a museum of all of planet Earth’s history from all times – past, present, and future!  She learns her uncle runs the place and that he’d like her to compete along with several other young people for an internship at the Museum.  Delia and the others must pass 3 trials where they travel through time on various assignments.  On their first trip, Delia meets a strange man (Grey Earl) who gives her a mysterious stone.  When she meets him later, he doesn’t remember her and gets her whole team into trouble.  Delia doesn’t know if she can trust him, and her teammates don’t know if they should trust her.  Their third assignment almost ends in the destruction of London (year 3029), but Delia’s quick thinking saves the day.  To whom will the internship be awarded?  This exciting series opener will be a hit with readers who like action and suspense.  Fans of Raina Telgemeier’s graphic works will also want to check this out.  Super fun!
