Back to the Future meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in this original, poignant, race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father's life. My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later, when he was twelve. On his twelfth birthday, Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father. It directs him to the bunker of their old house, where Al finds a time machine (an ancient computer and a tin bucket). The letter also outlines a mission: travel back to 1984 and prevent the go-kart accident that will eventually take his father's life. But as Al soon discovers, whizzing back thirty years requires not only imagination and courage, but also lying to your mom, stealing a moped, and setting your school on fire—oh, and keeping your pet hamster safe. With a literary edge and tons of commerical appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice.

This book will lift your spirit and it can make you happy. In this book, Al learns how to time travel and manages to save his Dad from dying. A very good book that I recommend to anyone.

Funny and lighthearted at times, but also surprisingly complex for a story about time travel that features a bathtub time machine and a pet hamster named after an international soccer star. While the writing struggled at times, overall, an entertaining adventure that also managed to address topics like bullying and the death of a parent.
