"Set on a fictitious island, this fantasy begins with restful images but soon quickens its pace as two worlds (their real unspoiled island and the 'otherworld') collide for a 12-year-old and his 'strange and special brother.' Readers are likely to be pulled in by the sensitive portrayals of the siblings, the mysterious adventures and the whirlwind climax," PW said. Ages 9-12. (Sept.)
