Seven Stories Up

Annie has never even met her grandmother before. In fact, she's never had much family to speak of. So when she and her mother pull into the drive of her grandmother's home in Baltimore, Annie can hardly contain her excitement! But when she actually meets her grandma, the bitter old woman doesn't seem like someone Annie could ever love, or miss. Until one magical, stormy night changes everything.

It's impossible that Annie could have jumped back in time. . . right? But here she is in 1937 -- the year her grandmother was just her age! Molly is an invalid. She lives by herself, on the top floor of a hotel. She seems a little lonely, but friendly and fun, nothing like the horrible old woman Annie just met. Annie entices Molly down from her room, and together the two girls roam. They sneak around the grand hotel, and explore the brick streets of old Baltimore. Carnivals and taxis, midnight raids on the kitchen. The two grow closer.

But as Molly becomes bolder, and ventures further from the safety of her room, Annie begins to wonder how she'll ever get back home. Maybe she's changed the past a little too much. . .

"The story is ultimately about the transformative power of deep friendship and the ways new experiences can shape our lives, but Snyder also makes it about the social disparities between rich and poor, the meaning of family, standing up for oneself, and living life to the fullest. Not only is the author's well-researched 1937 Baltimore a vibrant and enticing character in its own right, but both Annie and Molly are utterly believable, engaging personalities....A wide variety of readers will find this book wonderfully satisfying and hard to put down." -- Rhona Campbell, School Library Journal
