To save her father's future, she'll have to change the past.

The one thing thirteen-year-old Margaret O'Malley is sure of is that her father is innocent. So when the unthinkable happens and he's sentenced to death by the cruel Judge Biggs, Margaret is desperate to save him. She'll do whatever it takes, even if it means using her family's secret—and forbidden—ability to travel through time.

Margaret's only hope is to stop the chain of events that turned Lucas Biggs into a corrupt and jaded man. With the help of her best friend, Charlie, and his grandpa Josh, Margaret jumps back in time to a year when everything in her town was going wrong—a year that changed Lucas Biggs forever. Together with a then-thirteen-year-old Josh, Margaret sets out to change the past. But the rules of time travel are strict, and as the forces of history resist, Margaret is running out of chances before she will be pushed back to a present where her father is doomed.

Written by New York Times bestselling author Marisa de los Santos and her husband, picture book author David Teague, this spellbinding story proves that sometimes good needs a little extra help to triumph over evil.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This book is hard to put down! Vivid and memorable, Saving Lucas Biggs casts a captivating spell that will keep you turning pages. A heartfelt yarn of family, friendship, and homespun time-travel magic.”

    Ingrid Law, New York Times bestselling author of Savvy

  • “The authors weave a tale of justice and family bonds with threads of historical fiction accented with the fantastical physics of time travel.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “The authors, a husband-and-wife writing team, seamlessly incorporate heavy social-justice issues—fracking for natural gas in 2014 and a coal-mining protest in 1938—into a riveting time-travel adventure story…Strong storytelling, suspense, lyrical writing, high drama, weighty matters made accessible, and a bit of humor add up to a terrific and heartwarming read.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “De los Santos and Teague craft a gentle, quiet sci–fi story where the focus is not on the science. Margaret’s time-travel abilities aren’t the point—love, nonviolence, and social justice are. Give this one to readers who like stories about family, doing the right thing, and standing up to those who don’t.”

    Booklist

  • “The authors’ graceful use of language and fearless exploration of a more spiritual dimension simultaneously comfort and challenge readers, encouraging deep thoughts. This novel makes a good companion for armchair time travelers and budding philosophers alike.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Three narrators deliver a compelling performance. Moving seamlessly through the story, they complement both the developing plot and one another’s voices. Angela Goethals is the voice of Margaret, who must travel back through time from 2014 to 1938 in an attempt to change history and save her father from a death sentence. Goethals’ clear, resonant voice has a haunting quality that brings out the urgency of Margaret’s mission. Steven Kaplan and Josh Hurley also give moving performances that convey the themes of loyalty and friendship, adding to a captivating listening experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
