In this episode of The Lerner Podcast, listen in on a conversation between author Nicole Valentine and her editor, Amy Fitzgerald.
Nicole is the author of middle-grade novel A Time Traveler’s Theory of Relativity, which Newbery Medal-winning author Erin Entrada Kelly called “one of [her] favorite debut novels of the year.”
Twelve-year-old Finn is used to people in his family disappearing. His twin sister, Faith, drowned when they were three years old, and a few months ago his mom abandoned him and his dad with no explanation. Finn clings to the concrete facts in his physics books—and to his best friend, Gabi—to ward off his sadness. But then his grandmother tells him a secret: the women in their family are Travelers, able to move back and forth in time. Finn’s mom is trapped somewhere in the timeline, and she’s left Finn a portal to find her. But to succeed he’ll have to put his trust in something bigger than logic.
