It's a very creepy book, and the idea that it's worth matthew risking his life to move a hundred year old skeleton a couple of miles is an odd one to want to pass onto our children but it stuck with me so strongly, the way matthew and jeremy are friends across time, the way they have such innate trust in each other without really knowing each other.
A book that begins with a bored kid in a history class who is destined to discover via time travel that history really is about life itself is a winning theme for me, but the author took so long in getting to the actual time travel, i just gave up in the middle.
Meanwhile matthew is missing from the present time worried parents and others comb the countryside and when he's found, so is the long-missing skeleton of jeremy visick--brought to grass at last.
