9780099433392: Charlotte Sometimes

The time-travelling classic about boarding school life, the First World War and the fear of forgetting who you really are.

"'Suppose you got stuck in here, and Clare there in your time. Just suppose you did?'"
Charlotte Makepeace's first day at boarding school is a bewildering blur of unfamiliar faces, timetables, rules and lists. All the other girls know the routine, and each other -- no one invites her into their exclusive circles of whispers and giggles. But on Charlotte's very first night something mysterious starts to happen. She wakes up in the same bed, in the same dormitory, in the same school. But something has changed. Charlotte has slipped forty years back in time.

About the Author:

PENELOPE FARMER lives in Birmingham and has two grown-up children. She is the author of many books, including "A Castle of Bone, Charlotte Sometimes" and "The Summer Birds."

Review:

"An intriguing fantasy."—The Horn Book

 

"...a book of quite exceptional distinction...the author has built a haunting, convincing story which comes close to being a masterpiece of its kind...not easily forgotten."—Christian Science Monitor

 

A "haunting fantasy." —Publishers Weekly

 

"Farmer writes with style. She is vivid in her depiction of place: on almost every page, scattered with colorful figures of speech, we are drawn into the school and the surroundings of the school through sights and sounds and smells and textures...above all we are moved by the depth and poignancy of the relationship between Charlotte and Emily."—Eleanor Cameron

 

"This year's most haunting fantasy."—The Sunday Times

 

"Farmer is always gifted in her grasp of possibilities that bring us up short with surprise and delight and satisfaction."—Eleanor Cameron
