about

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.
Katherine Locke lives in a very small town outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her feline overlords. In addition to fiction, she writes about books and reading and has contributed to The Forward, The GayYA, Teen Librarian Toolbox, and other sites.

Customer Reviews of The Girl With The Red Balloon

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! While I'm not usually a fan of historical fiction, something about the idea of a red balloon being able to help a girl travel through time intrigued me. I'm so happy that I took a chance on this one because it did not disappoint at all. Ellie is on a trip to Berlin, despite her grandfather's wishes. While walking around the remains of the Berlin Wall, she spots a red balloon. But the balloon transports her to East Berlin, 1988. Ellie's not only transported back in time, but she also finds herself in a world full of unexpected magic. I won't lie, this book is so raw and real that it was a bit painful to read but in the best way. You know when books are so good that you can't turn away even if your heart may need to take a break? That's definitely what reading The Girl with the Red Balloon was like. I can't freaking wait for the next one in the series.
