    One thought on “The Grave”

    1. This is the first book I've read in 2013 which was written for young people. Published in Canada in 2000, it's historical fiction based in Liverpool and Ireland.Although it's written in a light and often humorous style, the subject matter is sobering: the plight of Irish who were dying during the famines in the mid 19th century.The story is told in the first person by thirteen year old Tom Mullen set in 1974 Liverpool where he is struggling through a succession of foster homes. At night while ex [...]

    2. I was starting to get tired of my series of teen time travel books, but I liked this one a lot by the end. The protagnoist, Tommy, is looking for something on the other side of the vortex that he falls through--the same thing that a lot of us are looking for if we travel: romance, new experience, a chance to trace cultural heritage, maybe even a chance to make a difference. In this case though, Tommy's an orphan too, and he's looking for a sense of family that he's never had. Anyway, I thought i [...]

    3. Well, that was a surprise. I picked up this book at a book sale, not knowing anything about it. Turns out it's YA (surprise). I enjoyed the story quite a bit. This could very well have been a favorite read had I discovered it at about 12 years old. It has troubles, time travel, mystery. It's a good story of coming to terms with the past, the importance of family (past and present), friendship and loyalty. It also includes some history of the Irish famine, based on a real finding of a mass grave. [...]

    4. Horrible title and cover. It's not a depressing novel, nor a horror. Sure, it's kind of intense, but mostly it's just an interesting Time Slip: orphan in Liverpool in 1974/ potato famine in Ireland in 1847. Recommended.

    15. I really liked it :) It has a little of everything: Time traveling, history, even the mention of the Kung Fu series! (I'm a fan). The way the narrator is talking reminds me sometimes the kid from Catcher in the Rye, but every character has a different personality, and the end was good.

    16. this is one of my most loved books, although it is a lower level book I read it as many times as possible. I wish I could find it in stores.

    17. I loved this book. It might have been written for youth but even adults would enjoy it. The ending blew me away - better than I could ever have predicted.

    18. hort, Different. Okay but not great. Wouldn't recommend it or read it again. It's a strange tale about a boy finding out who he is.
