Laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident, and save his father's life... My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty nine and again four years later when he was twelve. The first time had nothing to do with me. The second time definitely did, but I would never even have been there if it hadn't been for his 'time machine'... When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad's time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary, and setting his school on fire. All without losing his pet hamster, Alan Shearer...

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.
