"Once again Reiss proves herself a canny practitioner of the junior gothic, blending elements of romance and suspense with confident storytelling."—The Bulletin
"A thoughtful and enjoyable book. Readers will certainly want to see more of Miranda and Dan and their delightful parents."—Booklist

This book was great, but it really only makes sense if you read Time Windows first. Usually Kathryn Reiss's books have something to do with time travel or history and this one follows that pattern. Miranda, Dan, and Abby set out on a journey to find what is happening to Abby. I suggest you read it.

Reiss has written many books; but this may be one of the most interesting. I would recomend reading time windows first though. This book is about a girl named Miranda who has this strange girl named Abby come to live with her. But Abby isn't what she seems... In Glass house people and Dreadful sorry, they also make refrences to the mysterious ABby. Highly recomended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Plae Phoenix, by Kathryn Riess, is a great book if you like to read mysteries. The title has a great meaning to the book. The characters are very realistic people with normal lives except for Abby. So if you want to find out the special meaning of the title and why Abby is so weird read this very good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
