'When I wasn't reading Sharon Guskin's The Forgetting Time, I was itching to return to it' Jodi Picoult


Noah is four and wants to go home. The only trouble is he's already there.

Noah is a little boy who knows things he shouldn't and remembers things he should have forgotten. Because as well as being a four-year-old called Noah, he remembers being a nine-year-old called Tommy.

He remembers his house.
His family.
His mother.

And now he wants to go home.

Two boys. Two mothers.
One unforgettable story . . .

Irresistible . . . Part mystery and part meditation on a mother's love for her child, this clever, heartfelt book kept me turning pages long into the night
