“Jeffrey’s descriptions of how time has stopped will stop readers in their own tracks. Plenty of action-adventure appeal.”
"Riveting. MAX QUICK is not what you expect, no matter what you expect."
-- New York Times Best-selling Author Scott Sigler
"This fast-paced adventure ... will keep readers turning the pages. What Max and his friends learn ... raises philosophical and ethical questions about free will ... The incorporation of figures from Sumerian mythology adds an interesting element that may appeal to fans of Rick Riordan's 'Percy Jackson' series."
-- School Library Journal
"An imaginative and occasionally thoughtful addition to the middle grade speculative fiction cannon, and genre fans will look forward to ... the next installment in the series."
-- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A fabulous, fleet-footed adventure that goes by in a whoosh."
-- New York Times Best-selling Author Kirstin Miller (The Eternal Ones, KIKI STRIKE series)
"A fresh, fun fascinating idea deftly brought to life. With all its deeply felt adventure, MAX QUICK should quickly captivate young readers."
-- James Jennewein and Tom S. Parker, authors of the Ruin Warriors trilogy.

While the rest of the world remains frozen around them, Max -- and Casey, Ian and Sasha -- find that it is up to them to discover how this has happened and reverse it.

Now he must embrace his past to save the future and prevent the very world from being altered forever ...
