School out of Time

John Halden

When twelve-year-old Larry Bowler, living in 1964, listens to a mysterious recording, he finds himself transported from his home to his school - but fifty-four years into the future! How can a boy from 1964 survive in a modern school? In any case, Larry is sure no one will believe that he is from 1964.

Then he meets Abigail. She not only believes him, but does her best to help him fit into school.


But can Larry's new-found friend and her 21st century technology help him with his real problem - the nasty, bullying schoolmaster of 1964 who is making Larry's life a misery?
