|Plot Summary of Johnny and the Bomb|
Johnny Maxwell didn't expect time travel as a side effect of rescuing his hometown's resident bag lady. He certainly didn't expect that he would go back to 1941 and meet his own grandfather as a young man. Neither did he expect one of his friends to get stuck in the past or another one to get arrested and suspected of being a German spy. Now he must set things right, and then there is the matter of the bomb. Can he save the town from being bombed in the past without changing the future beyond recognition? Helped (or hindered, as the case may be) by his friends and the man who will one day become his grandfather, Johnny must piece together the mystery and do what he thinks is right.
