Rebecca worries about the things a normal 12-year-old girl would worry about: starting junior high, her friends, her family. But when she witnesses a kidnapping and finds herself transported into a terrifying world of the future, Rebecca not only must find her way home - she must figure out a way to alter the course of history.

Originally published as three separate stories over 30 years ago, this newly revised and edited novel for young readers still resonates with one essential truth: the future of the world is shaped by the choices we all make today.
