Chase Manning Mystery: Chase Against Time

Author and Educator Steve Reifman, who was previously featured on Kleinspiration earlier this year with his book Changing Kids Lives One Quote at a Time, is back again with another great offering. This time Steve moves into the role of fiction writer, penning an action-packed thriller that is sure to excite tweens with a real-time compelling story that harkens memories of Jack Bauer and 24.

Recently released by Brown Books Chase Against Time puts fifth grade hero Chase Manning up against all odds, as he tries to recover a prized cello in time to save Apple Valley's music program.  Chase faces numerous twists, turns, and surprises along the way as the mystery develops, all within one day.

If you're anything like me, you will be looking for some great new current materials to stock your classroom libraries with this summer.  Chase Against Time is a fantastic option to consider for your library if you are looking to give students something with a fresh, modern feel.  And one of the best parts of buying this book is that the purchase supports our fellow teacher, Steve Reifman.  You can view his homepage filled with great articles and tips here.  Click on the links below to move straight to Amazon if you are interested in any of Reifman's other great books.
