From the author of Out of the Blue comes a novel of magic, adventure, and what it means to truly belong.
Brody Fair feels like nobody gets him: not his overworked parents, not his genius older brother, and definitely not the girls in the projects set on making his life miserable. Then he meets Nico, an art student who takes Brody to Everland, a “knock-off Narnia." Controlled by a witch called Sarah, its doors open at 11:21pm each Thursday and Nico and his band of present-day misfits and miscreants are able to enter.
Here Brody finds his tribe and a weekly respite from a world where he feels out of place. But when Sarah decides to close the door to Everland, Brody is forced to make a decision: he can say goodbye to Everland and to Nico, or stay there and risk never seeing his family again.
