The Girl from the Attic
Maddy Rose lives in two worlds separated by a hundred years but connected by a strange octagonal house.
Enter The Past With Maddy Rose
Maddy Rose is not happy. Her annoying new stepfather has moved her family to an old house in the countryside full of dust that triggers her asthma, her mother is pregnant and too exhausted to pay her much attention, and she’s been separated from her best friend. But when a mysterious black cat leads her to the shed loft, everything changes…
Maddy goes through a doorway and finds herself one hundred years in the past! She meets a boy named Clare who has a very sick sister, Eva. Together, Clare and Maddy embark on a money-making scheme in a dangerous soap factory to buy a cure for Eva. But as Maddy becomes more occupied in the past, life in her own time gets more complicated.
Feel The Pull Of Two Worlds
Motivated by her own experience with illness, Maddy wants to save Eva with all her heart. But in her own time, her mother faces pregnancy complications and is counting on Maddy for help around the house. Maddy finds herself torn between two worlds, two times, and two sets of responsibilities. But maybe—just maybe— what she learns in the past can help her solve the problems in her present.
Be Charmed By Rural Ontario
Drawing on rural and medical history, Marie Prins captures the past and makes it relevant for present-day readers, making for a delightful coming-of-age tale.
Praise for The Girl from the Attic
The Girl from the Attic is the Uncommon Quest 2019 silver winner. The quest jurors describe it as a “creative story with endearing characters that vividly transport you through time.”
Kirkus says The Girl from the Attic’s “gentle narration, enhanced with quaint black-line drawings, emphasizes building family relationships and accepting responsibility for one’s actions” and that “uncommon elements give this time-travel novel a charming spin.”
