Race Against Timeby Piers Anthony
John Smith is just a typical teenager growing up in a typical American town in 1960... Or is he?
He has a dog – that can climb trees and understand very complex commands.
He has parents – who watch him constantly, taking notes when they think he's not looking.
He has a girlfriend – a girl he's never met, whom he has been told he must marry.
John knows that something is wrong, but until he crosses the boundary fence late one night, he doesn't realize just how much. For wherever, whenever he lives, it is definitely not America, circa 1960!
