and I still don't know how I could have been forewarned. It was so unexpected and so When I start to read a book, I usually weigh the volume in my hands, look at the back cover blurb, and flip through pages to the beginning.

London Calling (2006) is a young adult novel by Edward Bloor. The title is taken from the on-air call sign of BBC Radio in London (2LO), which began transmitting in 1922. Martin Conway is an unhappy 7th-grade student at a conservative New Jersey prep school, All Souls Preparatory, that reveres the memory of such famous graduates as General "Hollerin' Hank" Lowery. His self-sacrificing mother doesn't listen and his father is an alcoholic and is seldom around. Their marriage is falling apart.

Martin Conway comes from a family filled with heroes and disgraces. His grandfather was a statesman who worked at the US Embassy in London during WWII. His father is an alcoholic who left his family. His sister is an overachieving Ivy League graduate. And Martin? Martin is stuck in between--floundering.But during the summer after 7th grade, Martin meets a boy who will change his life forever. Jimmy Harker appears one night with a deceptively simple question: Will you help? Where did this boy come from, with his strange accent and urgent request? Is he a dream? It's the most vivid dream Martin's ever had. And he meets Jimmy again and again--but how can his dreams be set in London during the Blitz? How can he see his own grandather, standing outside the Embassy? How can he wake up with a head full of people and facts and events that he certainly didn't know when he went to sleep--but which turn out to be verifiably real?The people and the scenes Martin witnesses have a profound effect on him. They become almost more real to him than his waking companions. And he begins to believe that maybe he can help Jimmy. Or maybe that he must help Jimmy, precisely because all logic and reason argue against it.This is a truly remarkable and deeply affecting novel about fathers and sons, heroes and scapegoats. About finding a way to live with faith and honor and integrity. And about having an answer to the question: What did you do to help?From the Hardcover edition.

London Calling is part historical fiction and part realistic fiction. I think it would have been a much stronger book if Edward Bloor had focused more on the historical fiction story. Martin is a sullen, withdrawn young teen trying to survive being bullied at his elite prep school and recover from the loss of his much loved grandmother. When Martin starts listening to the 1930's radio left to him by his grandmother, he travels back to WWII Blitzkrieg era London. Every time he travels back in time, a young boy named Jimmy appears and pleads with Martin to help save his Dad. Way too many pages are wasted with Martin saying "What do you want me to do?" and Jimmy saying, "I don't know." When not in London, Martin is dealing with being kicked out of school, trying to convince his family he is not depressed, and being embarrassed by his alcoholic father. The WWII story is much more interesting than the family drama.
