Zoey's family has a strange feeling about the two-tailed comet in the sky. But that doesn’t mean Zoey will let them chaperone her class field trip to Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee—especially since Grandma Cope grew up near there.

I have to be honest and say that I know the author, but this book is wonderful for a young adult reader. Not long after I gave it to my 14-year-old niece as a gift, my sister called to inform me I could no longer send books to her daughter. She caught her up at 1 a.m. on a school night, unable to put down this book until she finished it. Seriously, doesn't she owe me a dozen roses?

This was such a great read! I enjoyed every moment of this book. I actually just re-read it a month ago and it felt almost like reading it for the first time. Moonshower put together an excellent book. I'm always fascinated with time travel history. So, this book was a must for me. The Legend of Zoey will interest kids and teens alike.

A quick read, this book is a combo of historical fiction and sci fi. The story is both innocent and exciting as it describes the earthquakes of 1811-1212 that created what is now known as Reelfoot lake. But perhaps what I like most about this book is the theme of accepting and embracing your family heritage. I think students of many different backgrounds would enjoy this book because of that theme alone.

Zoey's grandmother is half Choctaw and Chickasaw, both tribes with history in Tennessee. But Zoey doesn't have much pride in her heritage until she takes a field trip to Reelfoot Lake, TN and finds she has played a major part in her family's destiny. The author use historical events, including the earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 as the center point for this story.

Middle grades.

Zoey and Pru are great characters and their meet up in this time-travel story makes for excellent contemporary AND historical fiction fun! The author's writing and skill in handling the storyline is apparent!

It took a while for me to get interested in the book. I really enjoyed reading it after page 53. There are so many Tennessee references that I think my students would like it because of the familiarity.

Zoey is a strong-willed character who goes back in time to help her ancestors survive the most destructive earthquake in US history.
