Deborah Jackson novel now available for pre-release purchase

Deborah Jackson's new middle grade/YA novel, Time Meddlers, is now available for pre-release purchase on Amazon.com and Chapters.ca; the official release date is October 28.

Here's the cover blurb:

One of Canada’s top scientists has found the secret to time travel. But something has gone horribly wrong. . . .

On the first day of school, in a new city, Sarah Sachs experiences the shock of her life when she sees a car drive right through a strange boy. Did she really see it, or was it a figment of her imagination? Soon, however, the shock seems mild. She becomes swept up in Matt Barnes’s life as she helps him search for his father, a famous scientist who’s been missing since Matt’s birth. Their quest will lead them to uncover a powerful new technology and expose the frightening secret behind Dr. Barnes’s disappearance. It will throw them far from the modern city of Ottawa into the forest-matted land of the 1600’s, and deposit them right in the middle of a war between the Iroquois and the Algonquin nations. In the midst of this strange New World, it will take all their courage just to survive. Will the answer they seek be found in time?
