It's time for a troublemaker and a homecoming princess to save the universe!

When the target of his teasing tries to punch him into next week, Nick Thorpe ends up only a few hours into the future.

It's weird. Nick can't touch anything. Nothing moves. He can't step back into the real world until time catches up with him. And it keeps happening. At last he finds out that a horned-horse Zephyr is running through Earth, searching for something, ripping the space-time continuum apart! Following the Zephyr are the fire-spitting Conflagrons, the perfectly evil Draconians, and everyone's worst nightmare -- a slimy Born attorney, armed with a Galactic court order.

Nick's best friend, super-genius Mike Pillsbury, won't help him this time. Mike's sick of aliens and scared of what's happening to his world. But Nick knows that if he can help the Zephyr find what it needs, then it won't be dangerous.

And his only hope -- his only help -- is Mike Pillsbury's gorgeous sister, Jill. Until she got swept up in the Zephyr's time warp, helping her kid brother's best friend was the last thing on her mind! Their horrific and hilarious adventures will thrill readers, as Kathy Mackel returns to the amazing universe she created for Can of Worms and Eggs In One Basket.
