An SAT Vocabulary Novel
by Erica Abbett

SAT Prep Redefined

Action, adventure, romance, ancient Egypt…

The book you’d want even if it didn’t have more than 500 vocabulary words to help you prepare for the SAT.

About the book

Noor Cunningham’s parents disappeared after discovering Cleopatra’s palace at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. 

When an overlooked clue indicates her parents might still be alive, Noor travels to the edge of time to get them back. 

On the journey, she’s thrown in Cleopatra’s dungeons, wooed by a handsome Roman soldier, and forced to use every ounce of her (not inconsiderable) wits to survive. 

With more than 500 high-frequency SAT vocabulary words sneakily woven throughout the text, you probably won’t even realize how much you’re learning!

About the Author

Erica Abbett spent years of her life studying abroad in places like Italy, Egypt, and Israel before settling down to teach middle school English and history. 

She wrote “Ahead of Her Time” as an homage to those experiences. Any similarities between herself and the protagonist are entirely coincidental…

“Ahead of Her Time” is her debut novel.
