What it’s about: Farway Gaius McCarthy is a boy out of time–literally. He’s the son of a 24th century time traveler and a Roman gladiator, born in the Grid, the timeless space used to travel between eras. All he’s ever wanted is to become a time traveler like his mother… but when his final exam is tampered with, he’s forced to settle for a different way of exploring history: as a thief snatching valuables from the moment of disasters where they’ll never be missed. But a run-of-the-mill heist on the sinking Titanic changes everything. A girl steals the goods before he can get to them and then insists on joining his team. But why–and what she isn’t telling them–could change the course of time forever.
