Seven Stories Up by Laurel Snyder
This is one of those books I heard such a buzz about on blogs and on Twitter.
I was not disappointed.
Annie, a twelve year old little girl, and her mother visit her dying grandmother who is an unhappy and downright cranky old lady. Annie wakes up back in 1937 and meets her grandmother as a little girl. Annie begins to understand the secrets of her grandmother's past which are key to understanding her present state of mind.
Although this book is a mixture of realistic fiction, historical fiction and fantasy, I think many readers will be able to relate with the characters and maybe understand how everyone needs to be treated with respect.
