The Minuteman Project is the first book in the five-part Timeline series. For eight years, Francis has been held captive by a power-hungry pharmaceutical company that uses orphaned children as lab rats to test their cutting-edge drugs. When Francis and his friends, Will and Jessica, make a daring escape, they find that the drugs they've been subjected to have given them extraordinary abilities, including time-travel. Can they learn to harness their powers and return to the present, in order to free the other children? Or will they remain tossed about on the endless timeline of their lives?
