Time traveling thieves.
A stolen kiss.
A wormhole to the heist of the century.
Fifteen-year-old Allie Bennett is a con artist, a pickpocket, and on her last chance at an end-of-the-line foster home. On a normal day of ditching school and pulling cons, she learns her mom—who disappeared when she was ten—isn’t a crazy but is actually a time traveler. And Allie’s one, too.
When Allie is kidnapped by a Mean Girl who heads a crew of time traveling thieves, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot—she gets to travel back to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to pull the heist of the century and find her mom.
Only things don’t go quite as planned.
It turns out that time travelers are hunted, her crew might be killers, and everyone has a secret agenda. As she races to find her mom, she must stay ahead of the governors who’ll do anything to keep her from changing history. She has to pull off the con of her life if she’s going to make it out alive.
Quake’s twists and turns take you on a wild journey through time, from modern day to 1906 to 2153 San Francisco.
A fractured future.
A family secret.
The ultimate double-cross.
The Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 leaves Allie without her crew, her parents, or a life to return to in 2018. Refusing to accept this, Allie dives into the rapidly closing wormhole—with her newfound half sister, Bel—intending to go back in time and save everyone.
Except Mean Girl Bel has other plans.
Bel hijacks the wormhole, taking them both to 2153. Now Allie is trapped in the treacherous landscape of Bel’s “real time,” where Bel’s uber-powerful mom is in charge and has banned all time travel. Out of her element and out of her depth, Allie has to figure out how to get back to 1906 and make things right.
Desperate, Allie secures the help of time monitor Flyx and his friends. Together they make a plan to circumvent the time travel ban and send Allie back in time.
For the plan to succeed, Allie must avoid being “recycled” by Bel’s mom, escape the clutches of Nazis who’ve taken over the city, and finesse her biggest con yet: convincing Bel to take her side.
