Bloor, Edward. London calling. Knopf, 2006 [0-375-93635-1]
Johnny is a 7th grader who goes to an exclusive private school only because his mom works there. He has some struggles with the rich kids who attend the school. Johnny inherits an old radio from his grandmother which takes him back to London of 1940 and a boy named Jimmy. At first Johnny thinks he is dreaming but he checks out the facts of his dream that he could have never known. He eventually finds out that the Jimmy of his dream is trying to tell him something... to solve a wrong done a long time ago. This 289 page book is a mixture of history and current story of a boy in an exclusive prep school. This mix makes a good story which leads to a great ending.
