Middle-school student Edward and his friends must undo the havoc caused by mysterious rock known as the Time Fetch. Some consider this lyrical middle grade debut set in Prospect Park, Brooklyn to be a hip, urban version of A Wrinkle in Time.


Under normal circumstances, a Time Fetch sends out its foragers to collect only those moments that will never be missed or regretted so that time can be redistributed where it is needed most. But when eighth-grader Edward mistakes a sleeping Fetch for an ordinary rock, the foragers are disturbed from their slumber and begin to gobble up time. As the fabric of space and time starts to unravel, Edward must form an unlikely alliance with three classmates, all of whom have touched the Fetch, before it’s too late and time is wrecked for good.

The Time Fetch does for Prospect Park what From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler did for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is a thrilling story of unexpected friendship and courage, sure to delight a new generation of fantasy fans.
