Description

Discover the middle-grade debut Kirkus Reviews calls "spellbinding" by an award-winning author Booklist says "has crafted a definite winner."

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 and a hundred years apart.

The children meet through a hand-painted talking 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?
