Charlotte Makepeace’s first day at boarding school is a bewildering blur of unfamiliar faces, timetables, rules and lists. All the other girls know the routine – and each other. No one invites her into their exclusive circles of whispers and giggles. But on Charlotte’s very first night something mysterious starts to happen. Penelope Farmer's 'Charlotte Sometimes' has an incredible depth accomplished with an effortlessness I rarely come across in contemplative fiction written for adults, let alone children. For this reason, I cannot accept it as a simple story about a child who travels time, but a story where an adolescent girl lays the foundation for her : Andrew Fairweather. Penelope Farmer lives in Birmingham and has two grown-up children. She is the author of many books, including A Castle of Bone, Charlotte Sometimes and The Summer Birds/5(). This song is based on one of Robert Smith's favorite books: a novel called Charlotte Sometimes by the British author Penelope Farmer. In the book, the title character finds herself transported 40 years back in time. Smith wrote this song using the same themes of time shifting and displacement.
