9780099433392: Charlotte Sometimes

It is Charlotte's first night at boarding school. But when she wakes up, the girl in the next bed is not the person who was sleeping there the evening before. And the new building outside her window seems to have metamorphosed into a huge, dark cedar tree! Somehow, Charlotte has slipped back forty years.

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 and The Summer Birds.

Review:

“[Charlotte Sometimes] has all the pleasures of a good time-travel yarn...Adolescence is all about forging an identity, and this novel speaks to those questions of ‘who am I?’ and ‘how do other people see me?’ in an abstract, haunting way...For those of you with middle-grade children, I recommend Charlotte Sometimes wholeheartedly, and for those of you who may have read it as a child, I recommend returning to it, if only because rereading is one of the only forms of time travel available to us.” —Hannah Gersen, The Millions

"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

"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
