Terence Blacker is the author of many novels for young readers including, THE TRANSFER, BOY2GIRL and PARENTSWAP, and the best-selling MS WIZ series which has been translated into fourteen languages. He is a journalist and critic, both in print and on radio, and writes a regular topical column in the Independent. He also plays the guitar and writes songs, and lives in a house in the Norfolk countryside which he converted from a goose hatchery.From AudioFile:
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.
