I enjoyed listening to the author's gentle voice journeying with Siena and Siena's coming to term's with her psychic gift and the ability of imagination to both hurt and harm. When the book ended I was sad -- I felt I would have liked it to go on forever.

"Siena is happy to move from New York to Maine since it means she'll be able to make new friends who don't know about her freaky ability to see glimpses of the past. The move might also encourage her mute younger brother, Lucca, to start talking again. But the new house feels curiously familiar, and soon Siena realizes that both Lucca's muteness and her own visions are deeply (and maybe dangerously) intertwined with the lives of the family of who lived in the house during World War II. Readers who loved the mysterious layers of Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me won't be able to resist this time-tripping story of family and friendship." Kids' Books November 2013 newsletter
