About Time School: We Will Remember Them:

After running late and catching the wrong train to school, Jess, Nadia, Tomma and Ash find themselves one hundred years in the past.  Going back has its risks.  Can the friends make it home or will they be stuck in World War One forever? 

About Time School: We Will Honour Them:

Nadia Kaminski knows very little about her Polish grandfather and her Polish roots, so how is she going to write a speech about him to read at his funeral?  Along with fellow time-travellers, Jess, Tomma, and Ash, they find themselves on a train journey to the past.  Who is Marcel?  And why does he have the same name as Nadia?  Is this a chance for Nadia to find out who she really is?  It’s time to board the train for another adventure back in time.

“A beautiful tale of time travel, friendship and adventure.” Siobhan Curham.
