Added DiffLines:

''Charlotte Sometimes'' is a children's novel by British writer Penelope Farmer. It is the story of Charlotte, a young girl sent to a boarding school where she begins travelling back in time every other night, switching places with a girl called Clare. Alternating between 1963 and 1918, the book takes a frightening turn when the girls find themselves stuck in the wrong decades.


Notable for its philosophical themes and questions of identity and self, the book inspired Robert Smith of Music/TheCure to write the song ''Charlotte Sometimes''.
