Josie and Alec both live at 444 Sparrow Street. They sleep in the same room, but they’ve never laid eyes on each other. They are twelve years old but a hundred years apart.
The children meet through a handpainted spirit board—Josie in 1915, Alec in 2015—and form a friendship across the century that separates them. But a chain of events leave Josie and her little sister Cass trapped in the house and afraid for their safety, and Alec must find out what’s going to happen to them. Can he help them change their future when it’s already past?
The Boy from Tomorrow is a tribute to classic English fantasy novels like Tom’s Midnight Garden and A Traveller in Time. Through their impossible friendship, Alec and Josie learn that life can offer only what they ask of it.
This is an amazing story about Alec and Josie. They live in the same house only separated by 100 years. Josie's mother is often cold and abusive and Alec is her only friend. they start talking through a spirit board and then later a gramophone. Alec tells her of the future and Josie tells of the present. This book is also told from both perspectives switching between the two so you know what is happening with each character. This was a really unique story that I will definitely read again and again.
P.S. The author does include a warning about using the spirit board in real life.
