Twists of Time (46. Ascending)
S.R. Cronin, author
Alex walked away from a rare ability to control time, thinking it was only a young man’s trick to play basketball better. Today he teaches physics at a country school where a growing immigrant population has reignited a shameful history of organized hate. As the new principal's white nationalist leanings begin to affect Alex's students and his daughter, he can no longer sit on the sidelines. When an old friend reappears with an ancient Maya mystery offering a rare chance to bridge the past and future, Alex has his hands full. Both situations require him to learn to control his temporal talents before he runs out of time.
