Basically Gwendolyn aka Gwen is a relatively normal 16-year-old from London: She visits the 10th class of the Saint Lennox High School and her grades are relatively good. She has a best friend named Leslie and very wiry relatives along with her conceited cousin Charlotte.

But her family has a secret: Cousin Charlotte is a time traveler. At least that is what everybody thinks. For her earliest days the has been prepared to travel through time. Now it seems to be the moment for Charlotte to travel to the past for the first time.

But confusingly, suddenly Gwen instead of Charlotte finds herself in the past turn of the century. Gwen does not only have to cope with the anger in her family but also with the surprising happenings in London at the turn of the century. All this gets even more complicated as Gwen falls in love – with somebody from another century!
