The Boy from Tomorrow: a novel for children

Coming from Amberjack Publishing on May 8, 2018


Josie and Alec both live at 444 Sparrow Street. They sleep in the same room, but they’ve never laid eyes on each other. They are twelve years old but a hundred years apart.

The children meet through a handpainted spirit board—Josie in 1915, Alec in 2015—and form a friendship across the century that separates them. But a chain of events leave Josie and her little sister Cass trapped in the house and afraid for their safety, and Alec must find out what’s going to happen to them. Can he help them change their future when it’s already past?

The Boy from Tomorrow is a tribute to classic English fantasy novels like Tom’s Midnight Garden and A Traveller in Time. Through their impossible friendship, Alec and Josie learn that life can offer only what they ask of it.

With wonderful illustrations by Agnieszka Grochalska.

You will fall in love with DeAngelis’ characters and root for their impossible friendship across time. Perfect for fans of historical fiction, this spine-tingling paranormal novel is riveting.

In The Boy From Tomorrow Camille DeAngelis creates an atmosphere of comforting nostalgia without falling into old-fashioned cliches. It’s a carefully paced and lovingly crafted book that will draw readers for many years to come, and I enjoyed it ever so much.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
