Chronicle of the Century
What lurks in a crate found 100 years too late? The future and past collide when a time capsule is unearthed--along with earth-shattering secrets!
There's something peculiar about the troubled world of 2078--more than just their hydrofruit, holla-grams, ear cams, and traffic bots. In the state of futuristic New England, rain rarely falls and history is taboo, yet a captivating time capsule is displayed during the last week of school. When Lyr and Innie discover a delirious diary in the depths, they're soon immersed in a mystery from a century past, taking them to a place they never expect!
In more ways than one, they're drawn to an era where pizzas are pranked, Star Wars is new, technology scarce, but the food is plenty and it's not long before they bond with Janet--writer of the teen angst pages. Along for the ride through giddy crushes, ghost selfies, a snarky nemesis, and too many blizzards to count, their laughter and tears share more in common than originally thought. Is a century apart really that different?
But when cryptic clues leap off the doodled paper, the girls begin to wonder... is the relic just full of adolescent gibberish or does it hold the key to a paradox bigger than themselves?
