Publisher Comments:

What if your dearest friends were trapped in a world that was dying?

Mehera Beatrice Crosby has one great love—and it's not following the latest health fads (like her school friend Celeste), and it's definitely not Andrew Suarez (even if he does have a ridiculous crush on her). It's Imaginalis, her favorite book series.

When she learns that the long-awaited last book in the series has been canceled, Mehera is devastated—until strange events begin unfolding, and she realizes that her Imaginalian friends are counting on her to rescue them from their fading existence. Soon Mehera finds herself traveling between her world and the kingdom of Imaginalis. But what will happen when she accidentally brings the villain of the series, Pralaya, back to Earth, along with Prince Imagos and his Companions? Has Mehera doomed both worlds beyond repair, or is there a way to save Mehera's world—and Imaginalis, too?

Expert storyteller J. M. DeMatteis's richly imagined fantasy is a fast-paced adventure and a testament to the power of loyal friendship, creativity, and imagination.

Review:

"In a sure-footed fantasy from DeMatteis (the Abadazad series), Mehera Beatrice Crosby is a precocious and enthusiastic 12-year-old who is wholeheartedly obsessed with the Imaginalis book series. She is the epitome of a loyal reader, and when she finds out that the series has been canceled, she is bereft and does everything in her power to resurrect her favorite characters, including trying to contact them: 'Sure, it was a mystery--bigger and better than any Nancy Drew had ever faced--but I was going to solve it.' She discovers that Uncle Nossyss the elephant, dashing Prince Imagos, Prognostica the Nebulous Seer, and other beloved characters are trapped in Nolandia and are slowly disappearing, requiring Mehera to build an Unbelievable Bridge to Earth to save them. While the book borrows several concepts from The Neverending Story (namely that the reader becomes a character in the book and that 'the whole universe is just a story'), the well-drawn characters, abundant action and humor, and hopeful message about the power of reading and belief keep it afloat. Ages 8 — 12. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
