When Theodore Worth's parents hide the abolitionist John Brown overnight, Theodore is impressed by the man's courage. Brown wants to free the slaves— by any means necessary— and, in 1857, this makes him a wanted man. Two years later, Theodore runs away to join Brown and his men at Harper's Ferry. Brown has a daring plan that, if it works, could end slavery— and if it doesn't, may kill them all. Lightning Time's seam- less blend of history and action will rivet readers. "This historically accurate, richly detailed novel perfectly captures Theodore's angst as he stands on the verge of manhood, yearning to act." — School Library Journal
