About this product
- Description<b><i>Back to the Future</i> meets <i>The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time</i> in this original, poignant, race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father s life.</b><i>My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later, when he was twelve. </i>On his twelfth birthday, Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father. It directs him to the bunker of their old house, where Al finds a time machine (an ancient computer and a tin bucket). The letter also outlines a mission: travel back to 1984 and prevent the go-kart accident that will eventually take his father s life. But as Al soon discovers, whizzing back thirty years requires t only imagination and courage, but also lying to your mom, stealing a moped, and setting your school on fire oh, and keeping your pet hamster safe. With a literary edge and tons of commerical appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice.
