A Good Read: Time Angel
Children’s author Andrea White has a new book out called Time Angel.
She says, “The book is about a world in the future where they have a time travel machine and there is a group called The Time Keepers and then there’s a group called The Time Changers. My character, Shama Katooee, becomes the test case for these two groups to decide what is the proper use of the time travel machine”.
Time Angel isn’t quite finished. White is asking children to read it and then give her suggestions on things like plot and character development.
“But I’d also like feedback on something confusing. Do you think a chapter would be more exciting if it ended a different way? That kind of thing,” said White. “When I go to schools or Skype with kids at schools, they always have a lot of suggestions for me; some things that I’ve never considered before.”
They can even send in illustrations or correct punctuation, spelling or grammatical errors. The whole idea is to intice children to read and improve their writing skills.
A draft of the book is online. The final version won’t be published until the spring when the children’s comments have been incorporated with the book. The name of the book is Time Angel by Andrea White at upcitychronicles.com.
