Book about dollhouse in attic
Time Windows by Kathryn ReissI read this back in elementary school after my mum bought it for me at a book fair, and I read it so many times that the cover fell off. Did I replace the book? Negative...I taped the cover back on, and I still re-read it to this day.
Time Windows is the story of Miranda Browne, the quintessential city girl from New York who moves to the suburbs in Massachusetts. The house is old, quaint, and everything her parents could ever hope for. Miranda isnt so sure, but she finds an antique dollhouse in the attic and finds herself drawn to it. When a chance encounter leads Miranda to discover that she can view the past through the windows of the dollhouse, which is a replica of her house, she becomes emotionally attached to those she sees through the windows. Strange things start happening though - the events that used to happen in the house begin to unravel and happen again through those living in the house now. Miranda must figure out the mysteries of the dollhouse before something bad happens.
This book hooked me from the first page. It was an intriguing concept with mysteries, ghosts, time travel, and just enough paranormal to keep me satisfied. The writing is quick, fast-paced, and easy to follow.
I would recommend this to anyone who loves YA and MG books, for sure. I give it a 4.5 out 5 because I still think the ending was too abrupt for my liking.

In the attic of her aunt's house, Amy finds a beautiful dollhouse that is an exact replica of the house itself. Playing with the dollhouse causes the dolls to reenact the grisly murder of Amy's great-grandparents, who died in the house thirty years before. Amy, her mentally disabled sister Louann, and Amy's best friend Ellen, convinced that the dollhouse is trying to tell them something, find themselves struggling to solve the murder and lay the spirits of the dollhouse to rest. However, a slip of paper that fell out of a book says that it was the gardener who murdered them. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
