Perfect for fans of Margaret Peterson Haddix, When You Reach Me, and Savvy, this charming time-travel story from husband-and-wife team Marisa de los Santos and David Teague follows one girl’s race to change the past in order to save her father’s future.

Thirteen-year-old Margaret knows her father is innocent, but that doesn’t stop the cruel Judge Biggs from sentencing him to death. Margaret is determined to save her dad, even if it means using her family’s secret—and forbidden—ability to time travel. With the help of her best friend, Charlie, and his grandpa Josh, Margaret goes back to a time when Judge Biggs was a young boy and tries to prevent the chain of events that transformed him into a corrupt, jaded man. But with the forces of history working against her, will Margaret be able to change the past? Or will she be pushed back to a present in which her father is still doomed?

Told in alternating voices between Margaret and Josh, this heartwarming story shows that sometimes the forces of good need a little extra help to triumph over the forces of 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.”
