MILEY CHASE THE SCIENCE ACE cover image
The author takes the notion of time travel and puts it in the hands of a smart, scientific minded ten-year-old girl through an invention of a quirky grandmother. Fumbling with the machine, her shy school mate pushes the right button and they both time travel to ??? BC Alexandria, Egypt where they witness young Cleopatra racing her chariot, hounded by jealous brothers. The chariot crashes, Miley and Tyler befriend her, fix the chariot. Miley helps her with Cleo's low self-esteem, and together they form a friendship. The story ends with Miley and Tyler back in real time, in the gym with grandma, showing their gifts of an Egyptian scarab and a golden ring to grandma who is staying young on her treadmill. "It's about mind and body. You have to develop both." The audience can intuit future travels by all three in the future. I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 15, plus adults.

Based on the musical - MILEY CHASE THE SCIENCE ACE. Miley Chase, a lonely, nerdy 10-year old science whiz, discovers the notes of her recently retired grandmother - a former mathematician and scientist - and builds a time machine. When Tyler -- her sports minded neighbor who thinks that science is dumb, accidentally activates the time machine -- they are catapulted back in time where they encounter future leaders as children and encourage them to follow their dreams and change the world.
