Fooled you! Somehow I read this before Book 3 of the Eddie Dickens series. My, M.T. Anderson has a sly sense of humor! I would love to meet this guy. I got this book at the library and only when I was home realized that I had meant to look for his other books in the more YA section, rather than the J FIC section where I found this. An entertaining read anyway and I do look forward to reading more by this author, including the apparent sequel to Octavian Nothing. This book is aimed at kids but has a really fun thread of humor for those of us who are part of the "and up" in "10 and up."
Apropos of nothing, a quote I really liked:
"'How do you get to home, then, when home is in another era?'"
