Publisher's Summary

Back to the Future meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in this original, poignant race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father's life.

My dad died twice. Once when he was 39 and again four years later, when he was 12.

On his 12th 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 30 years requires not 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 commercial appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice.

It was so good it brought tears to my eyes!

I picked this book to take a test on for my book. and I'm happy I chose this book! the ending made me cry tears if happiness! I don't want to give away spoilers for people who will read it in the future (get it? FUTURE!) but this book will make you cry tears of happiness. it's really a great story and I give credit to the one who made it, Ross Welford. Ross Welford is a really creative person for making a book like this and I pledge to that. I would very suggest reading this book, it is an amazing book and you will just get sucked into the story that you cannot stop reading it. I wish you luck on your adventures reading the story because I know I had a lot of good adventures putting my mind in the mind of Albert's and it was very crazy and cool at the same time. Also thank you to Bruce Mann for taking the time and reading this book to me, to us might I add. My ending conclusion to this is that the story was very amazing and I love it so much and you should too.
