An ordinary girl - an extraordinary adventure in time

In twenty-first century New York, peculiar things are happening to Katie. Strange figures are appearing to her: first, a girl with long red hair, then a pale man in a black silk top hat. And then Katie receives a mysterious note, which sends her hurtling back through time!

In nineteenth-century London, Queen Victoria is on the throne and England is on the brink of war with Russia. Behind the scenes, a greater battle is about to be fought - one that could decide the fate of the whole world. Everyone is looking to Katie to save the day.

But for a traveller in time, Katie's is fast running out...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A magical, time-travel adventure in the mould of E Nesbit. * The Times *
Exasperated by life at home and school, Katie discovers the solace of reading and writing her diary while hiding under her bed... and wakes up in Buckingham Palace in 1851. Humorous, historical, time-travelling adventure. * Guardian *
Completely gripping, this rollercoaster time travel adventure takes Katie, a contemporary New York teenager, back right into the heart of Queen Victoria's reign. Landing unexpectedly in the Buckingham Palace bedroom of Alice, Queen Victoria's younger daughter, Katie is swiftly caught up in a terrifying world of dishonest courtiers plotting unspeakable acts with the help of powerful helpers with extra powers. The details of the life of the Victorian Royals are brilliantly evoked while the adventure spearheaded by three exuberant children rattles along at a cracking pace. * Lovereading4Kids.co.uk *
One of the best books I have ever read. * Sophie O'Loughlin, 10 years old, Mslexia *
