Young Person Adventure - TV show / Film / Book
World War 2 was no place for children, especially a child from 2018.
Becky has another new foster family, which means starting another new school. Where on day one she falls into the same pattern as her old schools, having to run away from the school bullies. What's new this time is that she runs into the derelict old school building, where she is transported from 2018 back to 1941, her same school but during World War 2. She is forced to attend another new school but this one is very different as she has to blend in while she tries to solve the mystery of why she is there and how to get home before the planned demolishing of the old school buildings leaves her stuck in 1941 for ever.
History and birth.
This idea started as a short story about a girl that meets ghosts and it evolved into what it is today because I loved the idea of mixing children of different eras. Going to school in 1941 during World War 2 would probably be as strange to a child of 2018 as going to Hogwarts was for Harry Potter with the adventures that she could have just as much fun.
I love this concept as either TV or film but I think it does change the idea, I've been working on the outlines of both. The TV version I think would see Becky move between the two time periods for adventures each day and in the film version she would be stuck there for the entire movie. Before I write the script I need to do some extra research or bring in a writing partner that knows the era better. A show like this needs to be authentic.
