Elise's latest book, When Gina Pressed Enter, is finally here! 

When Gina Pressed Enter

Gina needs to get cracking on her dreaded Rembrandt assignment. It’s due in three days, and she hasn’t even started it yet! She’d much rather play with the smartphone Dad just bought for her birthday. There are heaps of cool apps already installed, but one in particular catches her eye … Quantum Timeline, The latest time-travel application from Future Industries Inc. When Gina opens Quantum Timeline, she thinks it might help with her Rembrandt assignment. Instead, she finds herself back in the year 1641, in Holland, in Rembrandt’s house. And her phone is missing!

How will Gina get back home in a world with no internet, no electricity, and without her phone?
