The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis (The Last Timekeepers, #1) by Sharon Ledwith tells the tale of Amanda Sault and four of her classmates. They get busted in an epic school food fight. When they are given the option of avoiding suspension by doing some gardening, they choose the latter, thinking they've gotten a sweet deal. Little do they know that their lives will forever be altered. During their backbreaking landscaping, they get to know each other. While cleaning an overgrown backyard, the group discovers a buried, weathered stone arch. Amanda unlocks the key on the arch and they are hurtled to the lost continent of Atlantis. It turns out the arch is an ancient time portal. An Atlantean magus bestows the title of The Last Timekeepers upon the group of misfits, and along with the title comes the monumental task of keeping history protected. Amanda and her crew find themselves in England, circa 1214, tasked with finding the adolescent Robin Hood and his merry teens.
If you are looking for a young adult, easy to read story chock full of action, adventure, teen angst and time-travel, look no further! The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis (The Last Timekeepers, #1) by Sharon Ledwith is your one stop shop to fulfill all your literary needs. The characters are down to earth and written as befits their age and maturity (or lack thereof). There are comedic moments interwoven throughout and enough adventure to keep the reader riveted until the end, whether you are within the targeted age range for the tale, or a little older like myself. This is a tale I look forward to reading to/with my daughter when she is several years older (currently 6).
