When twelve-year-old twins, Elsie and Everest, are forced to attend their uncle's boarding school for clones while their parents are off-world on a secret mission, little do they expect to have a dangerous adventure themselves. The year is 3002, the place is Northern California, and on the surface, thirty-first-century Earth is a virtual paradise with no war, violent crime, homelessness, poverty, or disease. But underneath the pretty facade, greed and deception still exist. Someone at the clone academy is smuggling artifacts from the twenty-first century for outrageous profit. The students are being used as cover for this reprehensible abuse of time travel for personal gain. Elsie and Everest must overcome the clones' initial distrust and dislike so that they all can band together to fight a common enemy. Life gets even more complicated when the Baskers and the clones find they've transplanted a twenty-first-century kid to the thirty-first century. Now the students have to stop the bad guys without irreparably altering history as they know it.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kristi Wright - winner and finalist of several national writing contests, transports readers to the thirty-first century. Having worked in high-tech for over twenty years, Kristi brings a wealth of imagination and knowledge to her Basker Twins series. One of her favorite thirty-first-century innovations include "jellach vehicles" which bounce off each other without harm as they zip through the air. Other favorites include the incredibly helpful, nearly invisible devices called "pico-brownies" that clean houses at night, and of course, the zero-calorie chocolate isn't bad either.
But best of all, Kristi's world of 3002 is basically disease-free. To help make that vision a reality, 75% of all royalties from this novel will be donated toward research to slow, stop, and reverse Friedreich's Ataxia. This rare, life-shortening childhood-onset disease causes progressive damage to the nerves and muscles. Symptoms usually begin between 5 and 15 years of age. Sadly, many people with FA die in early adulthood due to heart disease. For more info on the Basker Twins series or on Friedreich's Ataxia, visit www.baskertwins.com.
