Losing Time is a 192,000 word gen Back to the Future novel by Mary Jean Holmes.
The writer's description: "When June of 2004 arrived and Emily Brown graduated from Elementary School and reached her fourteenth birthday in the same week, she decided that the special present she wanted more than anything else was a chance to go back in time and visit Hill Valley in the late 1800s, to see that part of her family's history come alive. When Doc answered with an unequivocal NO, she was annoyed, not only because that was the answer she always got when it came to time travel, but also because she was angry with him, and thought he had to be going crazy because he hadn't used the Machines to travel through time for more than a year-and-a-half. Determined to have her way, she laid plans with her brother Chris and their friend J.T. Beckett to get past Doc's security around the Time Machines and, when the opportunity came, to steal one, take a few trips, and be back before anyone was the wiser. In order to seize the chance when it arrived, they found it necessary to take along the young Marlene McFly -- but in the process, something went seriously wrong, and now, Doc, Marty, and both their families must find a way to save the wayward children before they die -- or worse...."
