When sixteen-year-old Ellie Baum accidentally time-travels via red balloon to 1988 East Berlin, she’s caught up in a conspiracy of history and magic. She meets members of an underground guild in East Berlin who use balloons and magic to help people escape over the Wall—but even to the balloon makers, Ellie’s time travel is a mystery. When it becomes clear that someone is using dark magic to change history, Ellie must risk everything—including her only way home—to stop the process.

Reviews

  • Loved this magical devastation!

    - Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl From Everywhere and The Ship Beyond Time

  • Through interlocking timelines, Katherine Locke inspires us with the hope written into every magician’s balloon, and a tender, aching romance. Ellie’s tale of a girl lost in time pulled me right along with her as she soared above her circumstances.

    - Lindsay Smith, author of Sekret, A Darkly Beating Heart, and Serial Box’s The Witch Who Came in From the Cold

  • An absorbing blend of historical fiction, mystery, and magical realism.

    - Kirkus Reviews

  • Locke’s deft twist on one of history’s sharper edges blends magic and sci-fi for a gripping, heart wrenching read.

    - EK Johnston, author of Exit, Pursued by a Bear

  • A bold, unique fantasy that manages to be both timely and timeless. Katherine Locke has powerful things to say about how the past and present shape each other and the future, and about the magic of the human spirit.

    - Gwenda Bond, author of Lois Lane: Fallout and Girl on a Wire
