Phoebe | 3 comments Girl visiting elderly woman in NYC who tells her stories of her life. One of the stories was when she lived in a (middle eastern?) (hot?) country with a (prince?). There was something about a lot of jewels.

The girl doesn't like doing the visits in the beginning, but is made to (because of school?) (or elderly family member?). The woman has a lot of cool things in her apartment.

Read it at my elementary school library pre-2011, book was old at the time, and a hardcover.
May have a blue cover, but I checked it out at the same time as The View From Saturday and that is always the cover that sticks out in my mind.

Note: It is NOT the Maggie Steifvater old woman/monster in NYC with the young girl who reads for her. I love it that book, but this one is definitely different.
