Peter Lerangis, the New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred and sixty books that have sold over five and a half million copies, returns with Throwback, the first book in an electrifying action-adventure trilogy about a boy who discovers that he may be able to alter the course of history. But when Corey gets trapped in 1917 New York City, he must find his way back to the present if he’s going to save the future.
Corey Fletcher has an active imagination. He sees things no one else does. Cracks jokes no one else gets. And goes places few would ever dare go. Like the past.
All he needs is a metal artifact from a point in time, and Corey can go there. Although hundreds of time travelers live in secret throughout the world, including Corey’s grandfather, none can change past events. But when Corey accidentally saves a life while time traveling, he realizes that he is the first-ever “Throwback,” with the power to alter the past. Which means his own life is now in danger.
To Corey, this doesn’t matter. Ignoring his grandfather’s warning, he goes back to save his grandmother, who died tragically on September 11th. When things go awry, Corey winds up in a very different and dangerous New York City of 1917. Lost and alone, he must find his way back to the present alive, without changing the past and forever altering his future.
