'88 Lime Street: The Way In' by Denise Kirby
Synopsis: ‘From the moment Ellen arrives, she can feel something stirring in the old house. It's almost as if it's alive. Is there a ghost, as the kids at her new school say? Or is it something stranger? And why is there a tower with no door? When the dried-up fountain in the overgrown garden suddenly spouts water and weird messages appear, Ellen must find her way into the mysterious, magical and dangerous world that has been waiting for her..’
An interesting book, although the ending was somewhat confusing. I feel there was a little too much of the bending of time and some unnecessary moments. That said it was an enjoyable read and it seems like it might be the first in a series. The family characters were believable and the “ghosts” from other time periods were true to their period in history. I tried to imagine how I would explain email and the internet to someone who didn’t know what a computer was and discovered how hard that would be.
A quick, enjoyable read, and except for the ending (pay attention here), an easy read.
