Can her new friend Jack help her find a way back - or will she be trapped in the past forever?Written in Robert Swindells' trademark snappy prose, this novel about education in 1950s Britain is sure to become a favourite with students and teachers alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Swindells helps the suspension of disbelief witha careful leavening of information about the 1950's and enough action to keep the story moving along" --Books for Keeps
