    1. I remember seeing this book at a school book sale. Loved the cover, didn't even read the summary and begged my mom to buy it for me. After displaying great persistence in a public setting, she did! It was a great purchase!

    2. Twin girls are drawn to an antique doll, and find themselves sucked into a mystery from the past. It's spooky, but not terrifying; just the right chill-factor for the intended age group. The book is a little slow-moving by today's standards. Still, the story is interesting, and the characters well drawn. Plus, I love stories about twins. I read it thinking it was a time-travel story, but although the twins do slip into the past, it happens only briefly. It's more of a ghost story. (Retitled and [...]

    3. I guess I am into rereading books from childhood. I remembered the title of this one but not the content. I believe a girl from ages 8-12 would really love this book. For me as an adult, it was a lot more simplistic and not as entertaining as when I reread Charlotte Sometimes.

    4. I read this creepy ghost story over and over and over. Last time was 1991 and you know what - it still held up! Great chilling fun.

    5. I finally found the book that has stayed with me since I read it as a child. I have always loved time travel books and this one didn't disappoint. Reading it as an adult, the plot was thin in spots, but still a highly enjoyable book. It has so many elements that are among my favorites besides time travel: twins, annoying siblings, a wise elder female relative, a mysteryIt's not Harry Potter or The Hunger Games and definitely not Kate diCamillo, but still a fun nostalgic read.

    6. My all-time favorite childhood novel. I read my copy to pieces. The cover is more tape than paper at this point. Riveting. Page turner. Spooky, touching, and action packed in the exact right proportions for young readers. Anyone with an interest in twin, Ontario, family history, antique dolls, mystery, suspense, and a touch of the supernatural should read this book.

    7. Summer reading reminds me of childhood, when I had all the time in the world. Spending a good chunk of time rereading some of my favourites from those days, and this was definitely in the top 5. Such a great story, set in Toronto, and I am always a sucker for an Elizabeth in any book.

    8. A very loved book of my child-hood. A ghost story set in Toronto with a old mystery the twelve year old twins - Jane and Elizabeth - must solve. (The book was re-titled and is more commonly known as Double Spell.)

    9. This might have been my second gothic novel, right after Jane-Emily. Interesting story set in Toronto. I loved feeling the suffocating heat of the summer day and picturing the Victorian houses that the twins studied on their jaunts around the city.

    10. A nice mystery that takes place in 1960s Toronto. Twins Elizabeth and Jane are pulled into a mystery after purchasing an old doll. The girls become sleuths and discover a dark truth about the dolls past.

    11. Talk about déjâ vuI hadn't read this book since I was very small - I think seven or eight years old - and although I had forgotten much of the plot, the atmosphere of the book itself stayed with me all my life. I've been trying to recall and trace the book for years, without managing to do so until the last six months. I'm glad to have found it again. It's not the most captivating book in the world, even for YA, but the atmosphere, as I've already mentioned, is one that will stick around in yo [...]

    12. I vaguely remember reading this, but barely. I seem to have enjoyed it well enough, but it obviously didn't make much of an impact. If you want to read something by Lunn, go with Shadow in Hawthorne bay. That's one I've read a few times, and always enjoy.

    13. I loved this book. Awesome story. I am excited to introduce this book to my daughter n a few years.

    14. Contrary to the details above, this book was actually written by Janet Lunn, and illustrated by Emily McCully. There are 158 numbered pages.
