I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This was a wonderful book with so many messages. Noah Zarc is a paraplegic who is part of a family whose mission it is to go back in time to retrieve animals to repopulate an earth that we made uninhabitable. And of course there's a bad guy working against them to make sure they don't succeed. Noah is a very resourceful, very capable 12 yr old that shows that being a paraplegic doesn't make you incapable. Over the course of this adventure he learns that everything isn't black and white and not everything is as it seems. Family is more than your genetic makeup its about those that love and support you. There's also an important environmental message woven in about how we should be responisible for our impact on the environment. We all need to work to fix the problems that we have caused but at the same time this is a planet for humans as well. Balance is important in all that we do. This is a perfect read for middle school to junior high age but a fun read for anyone that likes sci-fi.
