Publisher's Summary

A truly original debut novel from an extraordinarily talented new voice in children's books.

Laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident and save his father's life....

My dad died twice. Once when he was 39 and again four years later, when he was 12. The first time had nothing to do with me. The second time definitely did, but I would never even have been there if it hadn't been for his 'time machine'....

When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad's time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary and setting his school on fire. All without losing his pet hamster, Alan Shearer....

What the Critics Say

"Touching, silly and exciting by turns, this thrilling little book is an inventive take on time travel for children. Sure to be a hit with fans of R.J. Palacio's Wonder...an unforgettable, madcap story from a bright new talent in children's fiction." (Waterstones)

    "Great read for kids and parents "

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book with my 8 year old. The characters were beautifully described and the story line was original, comical and moving. It kept me guessing and hoping right to the end. A talented writer I hope to read more from.
