Rachid Diallo has already published a book called Time Travellers. This is a very exciting novel set both, in the future, and during the American Civil War. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you could go back and change history? Rachid's book explores this concept and paints a picture of the events and atmosphere surrounding a particularly fascinating period of history. Rachid has done his research carefully and created a remarkable first novel before his twelfth birthday. It is a great achievement. The book is available in Mohill library. Now another novel is in the research phase.
reviewed by Chris who also helped Rachid to edit Time Travellers.
