Middle schooler Eleanor and her little sister, Mike, have always believed in their mother’s house magic, the energy that cleans away signs of their father’s anger and restores the house to normal. Whenever there’s a fight in their house, the sisters hide under a bed, until the day their father smashes a prized family heirloom, which releases a magical river that leads to a different world. In Riverland, Eleanor and Mike meet devious and terrifying creatures, but none as sinister as those in their real lives. Simultaneously a fantastic adventure and a contemporary story dealing with domestic abuse, this novel is at its heart an ode to sisterhood and the bonds that can carry you through the hardest of times. Ages 10-14.
