Children Ages 10+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Blacker brilliantly combines the modern world of computers with the unquiet spirit world in the story of a boy who died fifty years ago. When Matthew receives a computer for his birthday, he's elated--until unusual things begin to happen when he uses his email. He soon realizes that Giles, a boy who died mysteriously, is communicating with him. Cornelius Garrett makes believable the phenomenon of time-travel, which is at the center of this fascinating tale. His presentation skillfully combines the wonder and awe of such a possibility with the sadness inherent in the story. An unusual introduction to death for a young audience. S.G.B.
