Imagine- You move into a new house. In the attic is a dollhouse replica of the one you live in, and when you look inside it, you are transported back to 1904 to see the house's creepy history play itself out.

I think a 4th grader and up who enjoys a fun ghost story would enjoy this.

I lent this edition out to a friend in the fifth grade and it was never returned. I just recently purchased a first edition on eBay, and all of the visual memories I held came rushing back!
I had this book sitting on my shelf for about 6 months when I finally picked it up. I read the prolog and it was kinda weird and made no since, but then I stated getting more into the book and I couldn't put it down.

Miranda moves with her parents into an older house with dark secrets connected with a dollhouse and an attic. If you like time travel or time fantasy fiction, then you will like 'Time Windows'.
