Adam Gopnik Synopsis: The Steps Across the Water is a children’s fantasy adventure novel by Adam Gopnik. Ten-year-old Rose lives in New York – a place where extraordinary things happen every day on every block. But Rose wasn’t born in New York; she was adopted as an infant from a far-away country. Rose loves her home and her family, but sometimes she can’t help but feel like she doesn’t belong. Then one day in Central Park, Rose sees something extraordinary: a crystal staircase rises out of the lake, and two small figures climb the shimmering steps before vanishing like a mirage. Only it’s not a mirage. Rose is being watched – recruited – by representatives of U Nork, a hidden city where Dirigibles and Zeppelins skirt dazzling skyscrapers that would dwarf the Chrysler building. Well-dressed U Norkers glide along the sidewalks on roller skates. Rose can hardly take everything in. Then she learns the most astonishing thing about U Nork. Its citizens are in danger, and they need Rose’s help, and hers alone…
