Description-

  • The story of a girl whose strange life in a mysterious lighthouse is turned upside down when her mother's murder leads her to a hidden door — and a mission into an alternate world.

    For years, the door has stayed closed. Hannah Silver hardly notices it as she goes about her strange life in an isolated lighthouse. But when a pair of mysterious strangers — a boy and his guardian — show up at the lighthouse, things start to go very wrong. Hannah's life is shattered. And the door is now wide open.

    In order to save herself and her family, Hannah must walk through this door.

    Into another world.

    A world where she doesn't belong.

    A world that wants to capture her and make sure she never makes it back home.

    In THE DOOR, author Andy Marino gives readers an extraordinary adventure in a place they have never, ever seen before.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    March 24, 2014
    Marino (Uncrashable Dakota) presents a dark, surrealist tale that doesn’t always make sense, but isn’t necessarily supposed to, either. Twelve-year-old Hannah Silver and her widowed mother live in an old lighthouse; after years of being homeschooled, Hannah is being sent to the local middle school. This would be difficult for any child, but Hannah appears to be deeply schizophrenic. She converses with invisible friends, has invented a “Muffin Language” that no one else knows, and sees elaborate, hallucinatory deathtraps everywhere (Hannah is quickly labeled a “psycho” at school after she starts screaming about a vision of a staircase engulfed in flames). Then Hannah’s mother reveals that they, like generations of their forebears, are Guardians, protectors of a magical door in the lighthouse that leads to “the city of the dead.” After her mother is killed, Hannah travels through the door and becomes trapped in a universe like something out of a Dalí painting. Some readers will find this disjointed, madcap tale too confusing, but those with an appreciation for the strange and absurd will be left with much to dwell on. Ages 8–12. Agent: Elana Roth, Red Tree Literary.
