In this companion to Laurel Snyder's "Bigger than a Bread Box," a leap back in time and an unlikely friendship change the future of one family forever.
Annie wants to meet her grandmother.
Molly wishes she had a friend.
A little magic brings them together in an almost-impossible friendship.
When Annie wakes up on her first morning at the Hotel Calvert, she's in for a big surprise. There's a girl named Molly in her bed who insists the year is 1937 and that this is "her" room Annie's not sure what happened, but when she learns that Molly's never been outside the hotel, she knows it's time for an adventure. Magic, fortune-telling, some roller skates, a rescued kitten, and the best kind of friendship make up the unforgettable story of two girls destined to change each other's lives.
Like Judy Blume before her, Laurel Snyder writes characters that feel like your best friend. Anne Ursu, author of "The Real Boy"
