The Young City: The Unwritten Books (Paperback)
Rosemary Watson and Peter McAllister think their future is clear: they re finally heading off for university. They re thinking about finding apartments, picking courses, living like adults.
But what happens when the future becomes the past? While helping Rosemary's brother move into an apartment in Toronto, Peter and Rosemary fall into an underground river and are swept back in time, to Toronto in 1884. It's a struggle to survive and adapt to the alien culture of the late nineteenth century. Peter and Rosemary are forced to work together, to live together, and to become the adults they ve only been pretending to be.
As the days stranded turn to weeks, then months, Rosemary and Peter begin to wonder if they re really ready for a future together - and what they will do if they can t get back.
Then someone brings them a watch, powered by a battery, made in Taiwan.
