For fans of Inkheart and The Land of Stories, a sweeping, timeless middle grade fantasy about reclaiming and redefining home
Lan is caught between two countries, and neither one feels quite like home.
A recent immigrant to Canada from Vi't Nam, Lan is lonely in the basement apartment she shares with her dad. Her mom and little brother are still in Vi't Nam, and she misses them so much. Her books are the only things that bring her comfort.
No one is more surprised than Lan when a mysterious wind whisks her right into the pages of her latest fantasy read--and more shocking still is the fact that she summoned the winds herself Plunged into the magical world of Silva, Lan learns she is a budding witch with the power to help Annabelle and Marlow, the very characters she'd just been reading about, save their home.
As Lan faces off against tree guardians, moving corn mazes, heart-eaters, and thoughtless kings, she finds that Silva is not so different from Toronto: new homes can be messy, wherever they are. Now, torn between several places at once, Lan confronts an important question: how do you redefine a lost home?
