I read this book to my son when he was struggling with reading and it was so good I wasn’t allowed to have reading time until the family congregated after dinner. My kids are grown but I kept this book. Our house was destroyed in the Santa Rosa fires and this is the only book I’ve replaced. I was thrilled to find it and when it arrived it was in slightly used but very good condition.
I had been searching for this book for many years, but I could not remember enough details about it to do an accurate Google search. It was read to me by a fourth grade teacher during a read aloud, and I loved it! As I grew up, the book slowly faded from my mind, but from time to time the imagery that this book provoked within my minds eye would resurface. About five years ago I became obsessed with rediscovering the book, but I could only remember vague bits and pieces. Recently I got a hold of my fourth grade teacher who could not remember the name of the book, but said she was pretty sure it was from one of her time travel series. I Googled "elevator time travel" and was immediately directed to a web sight where people like myself were searching for books that they had read long ago but could not remember the name of. I was startled to find an eerily similar vague description of the book given by another woman. It was the same book that I was looking for, and someone else had produced the title of the book. After reading the synopsis, I knew I had struck gold! When I began re-reading the book, I found it just as fun, adventurous, and chilling as I did when I was ten years old. I am very grateful to have rediscovered this book!
I read this book as a child and loved it! Bought it for my niece...but I read it again first so that we could talk about it. I loved it all over again! Fun adventure book with time travel and, even though it is dealing in fantasy, it all works and make sense.
Wow--this is one fascinating read, less about ghosts than true Time Travel! The plot hooks you right in subtly, then proceeds with inevitable events, to conclude with a satsifying ending. Of equal interest to boys and girls, this book attempts to answer the adolescent quandry: how do you know when a girl has a romance on the side?
Three California-grown kids are suddenly confronted by New York City's pop culture and Victorian history when they vacation there for two weeks with their parents and family dog one summer. The boys hear/dream voices at night and see strange, anachronistic sights by day. Soon they themselves are slipping through temporal portals, first by surprise, then by design. They gain information and perspective about the family that used to own their rented, multi-storied house. Yet their adventures are not always the same year in the Past, nor the same season as in the Present.
Of course their parents are clueless about these historical peregrinations, but it becomes more serious than mere parlor tricks--invisibly observing social interactions of the 19th century. The kids gradually realize that they have a task to accomplish in the Past; they they were chosen to perform some unselfish act for strangers long dead. Soon it becomes a true rescue mission of utmost urgency, yet the kids face grave danger themselves, if they can not get "back to the future." How much must they sacrifice for these strangers who have unwittingly touched their lives?
Do the kids have the right to attempt "unfinished business," thereby tampering with history, even it it proves to be compassionate meddling? At first they exist 90% of the time in the present and slip back or make contact with the past about 10%. But as the novel progresses they spend increasingly more time in historical New York City: the freak blizzard of March 1888. Can they get back in time to accomplish their self-imposed mission, yet not become trapped themselves? And if they succeed, how many family histories will be altered? Peck's tongue-in-cheek humor about teenage lifestyles lightens up an otherwise serious read. This is great stuff--even better than Blossom Culp!
This is one of my favorite books for older children. It is a shame that it is out of print, when so many of Richard Peck's other books are still being printed. When I read it to my kids, they couldn't wait to get to the next chapter. It inspired a love for reading in some of my kids that is still strong 20 years later.
This book is about to Brothers. They move to NY and their family rents a town house in New york. Once there he hears voices- late at night, after midnight in this stange house thats at least one hundred years old. As they explore the house, the begin to slip in and out of their own time, back to the winter of 1888...............

I would recoment this book this book for young kids at the ages of 11-14 i think it is a good book because it is adventurous and exciting to read
