Part 1 of the Miri and Molly series.

							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 ten-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

"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

“Barrows conjures up a delightful tale brimming with mystery, magic, and adventure that will surely enchant readers everywhere.” - School Library Journal
