Backward Glass — By David Lomax

Style : Fantasy + Young Adult

It’s 1977, and Kenny Maxwell is dreading the move away from his friends. But then, behind the walls of his family’s new falling-apart Victorian home, he finds something incredible–a mummified baby and a note: “Help me make it not happen, Kenny. Help me stop him.”

Shortly afterwards, a beautiful girl named Luka shows up. She introduces Kenny to the backward glass, a mirror that allows them to travel through time. Meeting other “mirror kids” in the past and future is exciting, but there’s also danger. The urban legend of Prince Harming, who kidnaps and kills children, is true–and he’s hunting them. When Kenny gets stranded in the past, he must find the courage to answer a call for help, change the fate of a baby–and confront his own destiny.

—————————————————————————————
This book had a great story line as well as some amazing characters.  The book is described as being Young Adult and I think that the book is intended more for everyone.
The subject matter would appear to young adults but the fact that the characters are very entertaining.
Kenny Maxwell the main character finds out about the Backward Glass and has a wonderful adventure travelling forwards and backwards through time.
It was a wonderfully descriptive book that can be enjoyed by all with characters who are human.  They all have faults as part of the character makeups as well as qualities that endear the characters to us.
This book from a wonderful author who has the ability to keep people captivated throughout the story.
