"This is a great book for tweens and their friends to read and share together it has all the earmarkings of the 21st Century Nancy Drew, with updated characters and technology. I love the way Author G.G. Fulton created strong, smart girl characters who are able to think for their selves and know how to be a good friend.

The dialogue is age appropriate and written in a vernacular that young people of today speak so it does not sound like someone not of their generation trying to sound young, current and savvy. There is not one inappropriate thing in this book so rest assured it is good for the age group of tweens and young teens.

I think the author did a great job and I am adding her to my keep an eye on list for new kindles for the Kindle I keep handy when the Grands pay me a visit.

"I bought this book for my granddaughter based on the reviews. As I usually do, I skimmed through it before she came over and found a great read. I ended up reading it from cover to cover and was very pleased with the age appropriate story that was fun to read. As a retired school teacher this is a book that I would have definitely had in my classroom for my students to borrow.
I am looking forward to my granddaughter reading this book and hope she enjoys it as much as I did. Truly a gifted author.

"It sure isn’t easy being a kid, particularly when you’re a girl with more than enough problems in trying to navigate her way through the middle school. There are boys and bullies and---time travel. Yes, time travel. And this is where the joy of reading this delightful tale lies, in the author’s ability to alternate between two worlds; reality and fantasy. It’s absolutely what I liked best about this book, the adventures of two young girls, fun-filled and written to be memorable for both young and old alike. I highly recommend for your tween or for anyone who believes that your imagination can take you anywhere." said.

"I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

When Carly's grandfather passes away he leaves her a mysterious letter and wooden box. The instructions tell her not to open the box until she reads the letter. She has always been her grandfather's favorite. She even had a secret knock that allowed her, and her alone, into his garage/workshop. She places the box under her bed where it stays until her best friend Patti finds it and pulls it out. She has been asked by her grandfather to wait until she is eighteen to open it. But, as Patti points out that is six years away. What her grandfather has left her is tucked away in a corner of his workshop. Carly can hardly believe he has left her a time machine. Carly tries it out while her friend is there in case something goes wrong. Then she talks her friend into going on a trip. But, what happens when Carly uses the machine to try to fix a family problem and changes things? The tension was taut enough I kept thinking, don't do that....what happens if...

Parts of this story reminded me of the movie "Back to the Future" where Marty has to be careful how he changes things because it could have dire consequences. This is Carly's situation. Will she make the problem she has at home better or worse? This is a must read book. It is full of humor and situations that my middle school students would definitely be able to identify. I will definitely recommend this book to them.

"Time travel and the innocence of youth is a great combination. I will recommend this book to my friends with pretend, girls and boys. Maybe Carly can take her brother on an adventure too. Solving crimes could give the duo some true adventure." said.

"Very good book and an excellent read .......
Didn't want to put it down!
Looking forward to the next in the series!

"Youngtimer was an unexpected thrill and quite a fun adventure that leaves me wanting to quickly see more "Youngtimer" from this author. Please hurry G.G., can't wait to see how this series develops! Passing it along to all my friends." said.

The family had his funeral.

Meredith Jessup (Carly’s Grandma) had a note & a box from her husband that she gave to Carly (Youngtimers).
What did Grandpa leave her?
Carly & Patti were off & staying at the Astro Palace.

What are the names of the 5 adventures the girls will embark on?

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written teen action/adventure book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of very unique/colorful characters to keep track of. This could also make another great teen movie, animated cartoon, or mini TV series. A delight for a MS-up teen girl. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free Goodreads; Glimmer Publishing; Author; PDF book
