    This is a short story about a brave, headstrong little girl, named Kate, who saves the world with a little help from "The Curator", but fans should recognize who he really is and hear The Eleventh Doctor's voice when they read his dialogue.  And, yes, the end of Chapter 10 and beginning of Chapter 11 has a sad part in it, as Clara warned the boy about in the TV series season opener in which this book appeared.




    The "author" of this book is supposed to be "Amelia Williams", aka Amy Pond, who was sent to the past by a Weeping Angel.  The book was supposedly written in 1954.  It's funny, because the book alludes to pocket cameras and cell phones and at one point says the 1950s aren't so bad.  :-)

    Amy

    Amelia Williams put many images into my that wrte amazing. Even though I know she did not write this book for real I could totally picture her in a room writing a book. Any one who liked DW should get this book to understand the warning Clara gives to that kid when she is babysitting.

    Amazing

    When i first saw the author's name on the cover it felt like amy was still trying to communicate with the doctor even now. I was in denial about amy getting sent back in time and i felt sad when i found out that the doctor couldn't go & get her and rory but who knows we may see her again any thing can happen in the world of Doctor Who

    WE NEED THIS BOOK IN HARD COPY, LIKE NOW.   The library I work at, ( In a very small, rural town in Illinois, USA)
    Has more than a few Teen girls who are every bit the Whovian that I, (The Kid's & Teen's librarian) am. They would completely
    lose their heads if I were able to offer this book. WHY IS THIS BOOK (and the Melody Malone book(S)
    Not available in hard copy?!   Esp, with the 50th anniversary just seconds away?? Auughh!!! 
    Like I said: it's a small library in a very small town, we don't have the capability, or the money, to be able to offer E-Books to our patrons,
     but having these books in Hard Copy would make several people very happy.  Pass that along to the powers that be, will you? :D

    fun read

    If you're a Doctor Who fan (or not!) this is a fun short story. It's so magical, just like some of the episodes of the show. I could picture the doctor as one of the main character. I could also imagine Amy Pond writing this.

    I got the free sample,read it, then bought it, but it tells me that the book is still a sample. That really stinks because I was looking forwards to reading it.
