A stunning new story from award-winning author, Shirley Marr, about family love, friendship and hope.

James is stuck in the present and that’s the last place he wants to be. His parents have separated, and he must get used to living two completely different lives. Now, he has two homes, two bedrooms and two routes to school, with nothing adding up to the one great life he used to have. James wishes he could go back to the past, to his Top Six memories with Mum and Dad.

Then, James meets Yan, a girl who looks at the world differently, and he discovers that travelling back in time might be possible after all. But are his memories as perfect as he remembers?
