Thirteen-year-old Tom Mullen has spent his entire life in foster homes. One night, while visiting a recently discovered mass grave at the local cemetery, he falls through a hole in time and finds himself in 1847 Ireland. Taken in by the first caring family he has ever known, Tom must find a way to help them survive the famine and disease that grips their country.
Should be required reading for all high school students. Gives a small bit of Irish history and mans inhumanity. Moral of importance of family. Loved it
