Product Details


“Resolving mysteries and featuring glimpses into its hero’s future, No Ordinary Thing is no ordinary time travel story; it contains timeless lessons on friendship, bravery, and letting go.”Foreword Reviews 
“Schmidt’s complex, tightly constructed middle grade debut explores time travel and fantasies about altering the past for the better. . . . Told in a confident narrative voice, the novel adroitly traces the characters’ and objects’ journeys and connections, encouraging close reading and keen speculation as the suspense builds to a most satisfying conclusion.” —Publishers Weekly
“The people Adam encounters and those connected with the three artifacts are all intriguing, and a greedy time thief adds a dangerous element to the last few chapters. . . . Elegant writing and an imaginative conceit.”School Library Journal

“[will] leave readers thoughtfully making connections and drawing conclusions.”Booklist

“A magical New York journey through time and the grieving process.”Kirkus Reviews
