The Kingdom of Kevin Malone - Suzy McKee Charnas

Winner of Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's Literature 1994.

Roller-skating in Central Park, Amy recognizes Kevin Malone, a vicious bully from her childhood. She follows him down one of the park's many stone tunnels – and into another world... the world of the Fayre Farre.

The Fayre Farre is a world of Kevin's own, a place he's made up from his twisted imagination and bits and pieces of the fantasy novels he's read. Amy agrees to help Kevin save the Fayre Farre, but Kevin's world is as dangerous and violent and confused as its creator. Before she can save his world, she must first save Kevin – a person she doesn't even like.
