A stunning timeslip tale about a boy who finds himself trapped in a well-known mining incident that happened many years before! This story of family, community and hope by debut author Karon Alderman is perfect for fans of Skellig and The Wild Way Home. Everyone knows the history of the famous Heaton Main coal mine accident – but that’s never interested Archie. Why would he bother about the past when he’s got more than enough to worry about right now? Like his Granda’s health taking a turn for the worse.

And the shifty Robson twins from across the street deciding they have it in for him. With the help of his best-friends Adila and Kyle, Archie goes on a mission to raise money for his Granda’s recovery while also avoiding the Robsons at all costs. But when timelines collide during an unexpected storm, Archie is pulled more than two-hundred years into the past, and into an experience that will change his life forever.

. . If he can make it back.
