Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
When Andie's family moves to Chelsea, the fashionable area of London, her world opens in exciting new ways. Though they are only temporarily living in an old house that had been subdivided into apartments, Andie cannot help but wish they could live there permanently. From a kindred spirit who takes his telescope out on the roof to watch the night sky to an adventurous friend who shows her the sights of the city, Andie's days and nights are full of fun and unusual experiences. As an artist who is fixated on the mysterious moon, Andie is thrilled to discover that a "real artist" lives in the house, yet she is afraid to show him her work. She, along with the rest of the world, is focused on the American Apollo 11 mission and the idea that humans will set foot on the moon's surface for the first time. As the summer progresses, Andie steadily matures and gains confidence—reconciling her dreams with reality and gathering the courage to face both. Part of "The Historical House" series, a collaboration between Adele Geras, Linda Newbery, and Ann Turnbull, this novel set in 1969 features a lot of popular culture references that may be new to readers. Well-developed characters counterbalance a quiet plot that, while ostensibly focused on Andie's dream of being an artist, seems more tied to the various relationships in her life. A strong series for readers who have outgrown "The American Girls" and other series featuring girls in historic settings, this particular title includes a glossary, an author's note, and an Usborne Quicklinks page to connect readers with video footage of the first moon landing as well as sixties fashions.
