A power cut and a series of mini-disasters means friends, Jess, Nadia, Tomma and Ash barely make it to the station to catch their train to school. What they find is a far cry from the usually packed commuter train they’re expecting…

When they arrive at Hickley School, the children are surprised to find some of the buildings missing and they don’t recognise any of the other pupils, who are all dressed in a different style of uniform. The only person who takes the time to help them is Martha, despite being preoccupied by her own worries about her family being hungry and not hearing from brother, Henry whom she says is away fighting.

The children soon realise this is no normal day and it’s not until they return home that they’re able to figure out what happened. What they don’t know is whether it was a one-off day, or if they will get to see Martha and the other pupils again. Jess hopes so. She has something she needs to tell Martha. Not knowing how or why she feels a connection and an obligation to this girl she can’t explain.

I really enjoyed Time School by Nikki Land. It was a refreshing read, with a storyline that was unpredictable. This modern tale brings various elements together, time travel, history, friendships and school life.  I am not the target audience for the book, obviously, it is children’s fiction. But, I really got a lot out of it and it made me think about history and memorials in a new way.

There are so many lessons to be learned from the book and I think it may encourage conversations and maybe even a day trip to a memorial or museum. Trust me when I say it would be seen through new eyes after reading the book.

This beautifully written and deeply moving book should be on your kids summer reading list.

Nikki Young

Nikki Young is a writer and lover of stories and ‘The Mystery of the Disappearing Underpants’ is her first book. Nikki credits her lively imagination to an amazing childhood, growing up in Yorkshire and living in a cul-de-sac in the days when children were allowed to run free and left to make their own fun! Now a mum of three, she says that in her head, she hasn’t really grown up and those memories of her childhood days remain strong and active.
