Story set in a real location?: 

Megan Ryder

Birthday: October 1

Favorite color: yellow

Nicknames: Aunt Frances calls her "Megs". Her father calls her "Red" because her hair is strawberry blonde.

Megan is 11 years old and is an only child. She lives with her mother and Aunt Frances. Her parents divorced when she was five, and her Aunt Frances came to live with them shortly after. Her mother, Julia Wyndham-Ryder, is an attorney and her father is an international correspondent. Although she doesn't get to see him very often, Megan is very close to her father with whom she shares a love of reading and books. She also enjoys writing and hopes one day to follow in her father's footsteps.

Pets: Ginger (her cat)

Megan is a true "animal lover" and never refuses a chance to "pet sit". She is trying to persuade her mom to also let her have a dog and a horse. Megan is an excellent student. Her friends call her "the class star". Megan is also very "thin skinned" and easily offended. Although she isn't very athletic, Megan did enjoy a European skiing vacation with her father.

From the Magic Attic Club website: "When we went on our first adventure through the mirror, we were all scared we wouldn't get home again. But I figured out how it works. Afterwards, Heather, Keisha and Alison agreed that I should write down our adventures, I like to write books as much as I like reading them-and I really hope the mirror takes me to all the places I've read and dreamed about.

My friends tease me for reading so much and call me the "Class star" because I'm pretty smart in school. It's true I really like to read everything, especially mysteries.

I love animals almost as much as books. Someday I'm going to get a horse and a dog. Mom says that for now I can only can have Ginger, my cat.

Do you ever think about the things you'd like to do? I daydream all the time. Sometimes I imagine I'm a foreign news correspondent like my Dad. Or maybe a horse trainer with a whole stable full of horses. Or a pilot! My Dad calls me "Red" because my hair is strawberry blond. But my very favorite color is yellow-I even put yellow laces in my sneakers! "
