"Some people won't believe any of this story. You might be one of them. But every single word is true. Tony DiMarco does catch a murderer, solve a mystery, and find a treasure--all in the first few days after he moves, unexpectedly, to 13 Hangmen's Court in Boston. The fact that he also turns thirteen at the same time is not a coincidence." So begins the story of Tony and his friends--five 13-year-old boys, all of whom are living in the same house in the same attic bedroom but at different times in history! None are ghosts, all are flesh and blood, and somehow all have come together in the attic room, visible only to one another. And all are somehow linked to a murder, a mystery, and a treasure"-- P. [4] of cover.

Tony DiMarco receives two gifts from his late great-uncle, Zio Angelo. One is a gift for his thirteenth birthday – a Ted Williams Red Sox ball cap. The second is a town house in Boston. However, the house is falling down, cannot be sold according to Zio Angelo’s will, and Tony must sleep in the attic. On the morning of his thirteenth birthday, Tony wakes up to find he is not alone in his room and the boy who is with him insists he is Angelo, the year is 1939 not 2009, and the room belongs to him. The book has many twists and turns, interesting American history and plenty of appearances by 13 year old boys from the past, each with his own story, but all connected to each other. At the end of the book the author identifies what is fact and what is fiction. Fascinating! Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.
