    The shock of icy water as a boat crashes onto rocks feels real; so does the castle high above him that is almost hidden in the mists. And what about the number 11 woven into all those dreams? The papers Sam finds in the locked box in the attic may hold the answers - if only he could read them.

    Brooklyn, 1875: Bird Mallon lives on Water Street, where you can see the huge towers of the bridge to Manhattan being built. Bird wants nothing more in life than to be brave enough to be a healer, like her mother, Nory; to help her sister Annie find love; and to convince her brother, Hughie, to stop fighting for money with his street gang. And of course, she wishes that a girl would move into the empty apartment upstairs so that she could have a new friend close by.

    "Featuring intrepid girl detective Minnie and helpful cat assistant Max, this vocal adaptation of Giff's story concerns a hotly contested pigeon race and some mildly sinister goings-on. Reader Dana Lubotsky has precisely the right vocal quality, suggesting a touch of uncertainty here, a bit of brashness there. The length is perfect: long enough to develop realistic details yet short enough to hold young listeners' attention for the duration." (Booklist)
