A heart-warming story of sticking with your friends and hanging on to your dreams!  

Families are complicated! Molly’s dad seems so lonely. He lives on his own, he won’t get a pet and he doesn’t get on with his brother....

Best friends Molly and Beth suspect his problems lie in his past, but what can two 13-year-olds do about that?

Well, when they have a time-travelling door, maybe they can do something! The girls go back to 1975 hoping to right some wrongs - if they can navigate 1970s cars, food and boy bands. And if the colourful fashions don’t blind them first!

Critic reviews

"In this thoroughly modern tale, Curtin’s writing is full of her trademark warmth and passion and she once again displays her skill in capturing precisely the way young girls think and speak." (Inis)

"Curtin's books are heart-warming but they also deal with some thought-provoking subjects, such as Direct Provision and elder care. In this book, Molly's dad seems lonely so she and her friend Beth travel back in time to the 1970s to see if they can right some wrongs." (Irish Independent)
