Stories never end. They just get bigger.


You only have to turn the page.


Meg Mitchell lives in a castle, but she’s no wilting princess. Raised in an alien world by adoptive parents, she spends her time fighting Centaurs, training as an Andai warrior, and chilling in her favorite willow tree.


But when Meg uncovers her birth father’s journal, she discovers a cousin she didn’t know existed. Meg and her little brother and sister travel through an interdimensional rip to San Francisco to search for their cousin, setting off a chain of events no one could have foreseen.


When her sister is kidnapped, Meg enlists the help of teenage detective Barb Taylor and her genius little brother Jim. Following clues dropped by a mysterious benefactor, they embark on a cross-country adventure to rescue her sister and find Meg’s cousin.


Family is everything to Meg, but not all is as it seems. In her quest to reunite her family, she may lose more than she ever imagined.

When I read the synopsis for Meg Mitchell, it sounded like the sort of fantasy story I loved as a younger person. It could easily have inspired the Disney movies of my youth, the ones I watched for hours on end at the weekend. The graphics admittedly were not always the best, but I was engrossed in the story.

I think that was where my imagination grew. It wondered what else these people, these creatures, could have looked like. For instance, what would I imagine Meg’s world to look like before she tumbles back into ours, into San Francisco? That’s going to be a hard pill to swallow, such a stark contrast between magic and the modern world. If anyone can adapt, though, it will be Meg and her young siblings.  Their adventures know no bounds, clearly, crossing worlds in order to find more of  their family and in their quest for answers possibly risk quite a bit more.

There’s so much more to look at as part of this tour. Please look below for links to reviews, interviews (both author and character), trivia, and even a book trailer!
