Sorrowline by Niel Bushnell

Twelve-year-old Jack Morrow is used to life being complicated. His mother died five years ago, and his father is now headed for prison. But then Jack discovers he's a Yard Boy - someone with the ability to travel through Sorrowlines, the channels that connect every gravestone with the date of the person's death - and he is quickly pulled into an adventure beyond anything he could have possibly imagined.

Finding himself in 1940s war-torn London, with his then-teenage grandfather, Davey, Jack soon realises that his arrival in the past has not gone unnoticed. The evil forces of a secret world are determined to find him - and to find out all he knows.

As Jack struggles to survive, he comes ever closer to unlocking the dark secret at the heart of his family, and to - just maybe - changing his own destiny . . .

Pure brilliance.
Every word of this book captivated my attention from the very beggining - even if I wasn't the target audience I absolutely loved it and I would most definitely reccommend it for people from 12-15, even though it's a middle grade book I feel it has the potential to hold many a readers attention.
I don't know why I haven't heard about it sooner, it's written beautifully and the plot line is very cleverly put together - I know that I personally would never be able to write about time travel, I find it difficult to wrap my mind around.
I absolutely love this book and would most definitely reccomend it.
Go get your copy now - go go go!

*****5/5 stars*****
