Text on the back cover of Back to Pompeii:

Terrified, Ramona stared at Theo - suddenly everything was a nightmare.
Ramona is on a school-trip to the ruin town Pompeii. She is feeling sick from seeing all the castings of the people that died in the volcano eruption that wiped out the whole town. She sits down to rest and falls asleep.
When Ramona abruptly wakes up she finds herself in a live Pompeii. Ramona realises she has travelled in time during her sleep, to Pompeii, before the eruption! She is terrified. She knows that the town is going to be wiped out; all of its inhabitants are going to die. If she and Theo don't get out in time they will share their fate. But she doesn't know the exact time the volcano will destroy the town: in a hundred years, in ten years or in ten minutes…
