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”
