The Boy from Tomorrow
The Boy from Tomorrow | Camille DeAngelis
8 posts | 7 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
Josie and Alec both live at 444 Sparrow Street. They sleep in the same room, but they’ve never laid eyes on each other. They are twelve years old and a hundred years apart. The children meet through a hand-painted talking board—Josie in 1915, Alec in 2015—and form a friendship across the century that separates them. But a chain of events leave Josie and her little sister Cass trapped in the house and afraid for their safety, and Alec must find out what’s going to happen to them. Can he help them change their future when it’s already past?

The good news is, the author acknowledged it? But this was also nearly a year ago and I‘m reading an e-galley that I just downloaded last week, so I‘m curious as to whether she made any effort to edit after this feedback came in.

There have been a couple other things that struck me as poorly phrased if I were to give them a generous read, but this is blatantly incorrect and perpetuates middle readers‘ misinformation. I don‘t buy the whole, “Well Alec is a product of his environment and would have been taught that it was all women, not just white women,” excuse. #NetGalley

Disclaimer: I received a free ARC copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"Oh, how I would love to read all the good books yet to be written." - Josephine

I really enjoyed this middle grades read. It has everything- a new boy in town, a mysterious old house, a fortune teller, an investigation, magic, a hero, a villain, some history, a little feminism & multiple references to books/reading. What's not to like?

I‘d never really thought about this, but it‘s absolutely true. #NetGalley

brandybear22 I disagree. Years of having to shlep things into and out of various attics with drop down stairs 🤷🏻‍♂️ it‘s probably why I don‘t visit home more often 🤔 5mo
kgriffith @BookwormM Then what, are both scary?? 😋 5mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 how does that disagree with the dichotomy between what‘s kept in attics vs basements though? 🤔 5mo
brandybear22 @kgriffith I guess I grew up with attics being treacherous. I don‘t think of them as filled with light or wonder (edited) 5mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 Fair enough 😊 5mo

#bitmojimonday is probably my new favourite tag.. 😂
Started the day off to the garage to get my tyres switched out. No more heavy-duty winter tyres for Monty the Car!
Made a spontaneous decision to get all of my hair chopped off, which required phone calls.. which was less exciting than the end result, the fluffiest pixie cut in all of the land! Had a very boring dinner and am now off to the couch to read the tagged book 😄😄😄

JoScho Love it! 1y
SilversReviews I didn‘t know we had a bitmoji Monday. :) 1y
