Summary, etc.: A truly remarkable and deeply affecting novel about fathers and sons, heroes and scapegoats. Martin Conway, seventh grader, is sleeping his life away, aimless and unhappy, until the boy appears in his room. He is a long-dead English boy, and he has an urgent question to ask. Martin, for his own sanity, hopes and prays it is just a dream. But then one dream becomes two, then three, then four as Martin follows the boy through the streets of London in 1940. Each time Martin wakes, he discovers that he has met real people, and been to real places; and he has learned real things. Struggling to reconcile his dream world and the waking world, Martin slowly starts to believe--in the boy, in time travel, in himself. And Martin's life, which had once seemed so pointless, takes on a great purpose that he could never have imagined.
