Publisher's Summary

Miri is the non-twin child in a family with two sets of them - older brothers and younger sisters. The family has just moved to an old farmhouse in a new town, where the only good thing seems to be Miri's 10-sided attic bedroom. But when Miri gets sent to her room after accidentally bashing her big brother on the head with a shovel, she finds herself in the same room...only not quite. Without meaning to, she has found a way to travel back in time to 1935 where she discovers Molly, a girl her own age very much in need of a loving family.

Critic Reviews

"Readers will savor the author's lively observations...while the heroine's adaptability and independent thinking endow her with the appeal of a Ramona Quimby or a Clementine." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Barrows once again presents utterly real kids...this is pleasing fare that adds a bit of history and a tad of mystery into the mix." ( Booklist )
"Barrows is particularly deft with characters' language, effectively distinguishing between the time periods and mirroring the way kids really talk to each other. This is a handy introduction to time travel for a younger set." (BCCB)
