              After escaping an abusive marriage, Cara Brookins had four children to provide for and no one to turn to but herself. In desperate need of a home but without the means to buy one, she did something incredible. Equipped only with YouTube instructional videos, a small bank loan... and a mile-wide stubborn streak, Cara built her own house from the foundation up with a work crew made up of her four children. It would be the hardest thing she had ever done. With no experience nailing together anything bigger than a bookshelf, she and her kids poured concrete, framed the walls and laid bricks for their two story, five bedroom house. She had convinced herself that if they could build a house, they could rebuild their broken family. This must-read memoir traces one family's rise from battered victims to stronger, better versions of themselves, all through one extraordinary do-it-yourself project.

              Fifteen-year-old Jordan Booker is launched to an ancient past unlike anything the history books describe. Now Jordan must find and deliver a collection of artifacts to the guardians to save future Earth...if Time Ranger doesn't kill him first. A fascinating, fast-paced journey ba...ck in time with a male hero that male and female readers will root for. Praise for Timeshifters and Cara Brookins: Fans of The Hunger Games will be sucked into Brookins' ancient world, frantically flipping pages to see what creative new critter or plant will pop up next. This imaginative tale of survival turns history and evolution on its head. -Diana Wallach, author of Amor and Summer Secrets Timeshifters has more heart, more weirdness, and more epoch-spanning adventure than you could fit in a dozen TARDISes. Brookins has given us a fantastic 'boy meets time travel' story in the Mark of the Centipede and I can't wait for more. -Joshua Unruh, author of TEEN Agents in The Plundering Parent Protocol Brookins gives readers a world to get completely sucked in to. Fast-paced and full of adventure. -Lena Brown, author of Twin Falls: Messengers #1 Unpredictable and thoroughly enjoyable. Cara Brookins' attention to detail and atmosphere makes Mark of the Centipede a time travel adventure I highly recommend. -Aaron Smith, author of 100,000 Midnights and Chicago Fell First

If he doesn't make it back to the time capsule, humans will be the next extinct species.

This second Timeshifters novel is sure to please sci-fi fantasy readers of all ages.
