To save Emma, Max, Kyle, and their new friend Petra must take the trip of a lifetime — to the Cretaceous period. Soon they find themselves dodging killer insects, velociraptors, and the terrifying T. rex. Can these three contemporary teens hunt down a kidnapper, forage for food, and survive long enough to return home?
