Description: (Moose Jaw Time Travel Adventure #1) Instead of going on a school bike trip in the mountains, thirteen-year-old Andrea has to attend a boring family wedding in boring Moose Jaw. She is annoyed by this situation and barely listens when a local restaurant owner talks about the old days of gangsters and gamblers hiding in the tunnels below the city. But then Andrea accidentally falls into one of those tunnels and finds herself back in 1920s Moose Jaw. How will Andrea outsmart the gangsters who are demanding that she work for them? And will she ever see her family again?
