Amina TheWriter (aminathewriter) | 7 comments The main character was 9 years old and liked reading books. She would climb doorframes and then sit there (using her legs to hold herself within them). Im sorry I don't remember anything else. I read the Anastasia books when I was young and thought it might have been from that but having re-read a few of them I don't think this came from the same series. Any ideas? The book was probably written in the 80's / 90's. THANK YOU!

I found this review on Novelist:

[excerpt] Heather, nine, has had a wonderful year. Now her tenth birthday is close at hand, much to her dismay. She tries of number of ways to slow the march of time, wearing last year's clothes for the school picture, climbing the door frame, refusing a birthday party.

Amina, did you get ahold of that book? Or are you still looking?
