The Door

Release Date: April 29, 2014
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Interest Level: Grades 3 - 7

For years, the door has stayed closed. Hannah Silver hardly notices it as she goes about her strange life in an isolated lighthouse. But when a pair of mysterious strangers — a boy and his guardian — show up at the lighthouse, things start to go very wrong. Hannah’s life is shattered. And the door is now wide open.

In order to save herself and her family, Hannah must walk through this door.

Into another world.

A world where she doesn’t belong.

A world that wants to capture her and make sure she never makes it back home.

 

Praise for The Door

A thrill-a-minute fantasy adventure...think Dante’s circles as written by J.K. Rowling.

Not since the equally haunting and engrossing Half World by Hiromi Goto has there been such an intriguing look at a limbo world that awaits the dead, and what happens to a mortal girl who dares to find her own fate within it.
