The series features the adventures of four teens who live in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. By using an invention created by one of the teens, the four main characters travel back in time, where they solve mysteries, explore history, and face ethical and social dilemmas that are not that different from the issues and problems of today but the solutions are not readily familiar. The teens have to outwit and outwork those that are against them live or die.
Response to OMG has been positive, with readers looking forward to more books in the series. In the words of one reviewer on Amazon, We often try many old & new authors in a hope to cherish an exciting new story being told. OMG is one such delightful tale about 4 children who are on an extraordinary adventure. Kelly, the protagonist is sweet, kind and amiable. Scott, the geek is superintelligent, Austin is a handsome jock and Zoey, sexy cheerleader, a little mean on outside but good at core. Initially, Scott and Kelly unwittingly stumble upon Edison's century old device which can talk to the dead. When this device is turned on, a spirit of a young girl talks to them and asks for their help. To help this girl the four make their way back in 1966 via Scott's time travelling app to find out what really happened.
The story has a wonderful starting. The visual imagery is evident in the first few lines itself where a beautiful bird is described on the window sill of Kelly. Author Bob Kat has employed various elements like mystery, adventure, science and budding romance in this fiction which makes it a sensational read.
**He looked into her eyes. "I can't remember when I've been so excited about something, and it's because of you. You have no idea how many people look at me like I'm crazy or eccentric. That is, if they even see me at all."
A flush colored his cheeks as he continued, "Everyone thinks it doesn't bother me, but it does. No one likes to be made fun of. Or to be ignored. It hurts."
Kelly relaxed and stopped trying to pull away.
"But you don't treat me that way," he continued. "You're different. You believe in me and my wild ideas. You don't judge me."**
One of the Para's taken from the novel which is worth adoration. How many stories would convey young adults to be non-judgemental and to see people for their qualities?
Virtues like this when conveyed in style leave us spellbound and seek for the next edition. I would keep a tab on Bob Kat for this new series."

Another reviewer said, “The author promotes a positive light on life by dealing with some sci-fi concepts with real life problems, only to show how these teenagers deal with it with a twist.”
Published under the pseudonym of Bob Kat, the books are co-authored by Kathy Clark, a widely published author in the genres of suspense and romance. Clark brings her usual skills to this series, and adds a paranormal twist. Her husband Bob Wernly provides some of the suspense and mystery along with the geek side of the story which fortunately for the reader, is kept to a minimum by three of the four teens in the book series.
