Don't go in the attic...
Eight-year-old Hazel and her little sister, Bess, have more than 100 rules to follow while visiting their grandparents' farmhouse for the summer. But the biggest one is not to go into the attic. So, of course, that's also the first one Hazel's 6-year-old sister decides to break.
But the girls never expected to uncover a family secret that involves a hidden time machine and their mysterious (and grumpy) grandpa. They also never expected they'd be traveling through time, meeting historical figures, dodging danger, and learning all about the very events that helped shape history.
In the first book, the girls travel to 1738 to meet a young George Washington.
