The Door to Lost Pages



Summary:

Step through the door to Lost Pages and escape a life you never wanted...

On her tenth birthday, Aydee runs away from home and from her neglectful parents. At first, surviving alone on the streets is harsh, but a series of frightening, bewildering encounters with strange primordial creatures leads her to a bookshop called Lost Pages, where she steps into a fantastic, sometimes dangerous, but exciting life. Aydee grows up at the reality-hopping Lost Pages, which seems to attract a clientele that is either eccentric or desperate. She is repeatedly drawn into an eternal war between enigmatic gods and monsters, until the day she is confronted by her worst nightmare: herself.

My 56:

On the table, there was a spread of breads, fruit and cheeses, on which Lucas and Aydee nibbled while Lucas recounted his story. There were large bowls of dog food and water on the floor. Aydee couldn't keep track of the number of dogs that came in and out of the kitchen to eat, drink, or get their heads scratched.

What's YOUR 56?

  4. The last line is a cliffhanger. Why is she her worse nightmare? I've written this title down.

  8. I am in love with that cover! I'd read it based on that, alone!
    The 56 makes me love it more with the 'dog-friendly' setting!
