Spotlight: Damian Dibben on Historical Fiction

I am very excited to share with you a video of Damian Dibben answering a question for me [ ; D ] 

The question was:

Does historical fiction aid the understanding of historical events for teens?

Huge thanks to Damian and Lauren at Random House for this.

Synopsis from Goodreads

When Jake is kidnapped by strangers on a stormy London night he discovers his loving parents have been leading a double life and are now missing, lost somewhere in history. He is plunged into a world of secret societies, dangerous double agents, and a terrifying countdown to oblivion. Transported by a Spanish galleon back to 19th century France, he finds himself in the headquarters of The History Keepers - a remarkable league of time-travelling special agents. The History Keepers preserve the true course of history against those who would change it for their own gain, such as the diabolical Prince Zeldt. Driven by a sense of adventure and a desire to reunite his family, Jake makes the most thrilling - and dangerous - decision of his life.
