I am an avid reader and a dedicated book blogger but sometimes I get requests from authors to review their books and unfortunately I just don’t have the time in my busy schedule and/or perhaps it’s just not quite my thing. So every once in a while instead of reading/reviewing their book, I’ll agree to put together a little post to help pass along the word in case any of you readers out there will find it interesting. This time it seems the book roulette has landed on a Middle-Grade Paranormal Fantasy. It sounds pretty fun and maybe it’ll interest some of you or your kids. Here we go…

Elizabeth’s life takes an unexpected turn when she falls into another dimension. And it doesn’t take a twelve-year-old genius to know this is going to mean trouble!
Being stuck in a world with chaotic magical powers and a clockwork box making holes beneath the bed is not exactly normal.
Could this be linked to her recurring nightmares? Or the strange gap in her memory that will never quite leave her alone?
And why does everyone keep talking about a prophecy?
Only one thing is certain. Getting back home again is not going to be easy.
Especially when it involves the biggest puzzle of them all … the mystery of who, and what, Elizabeth really is.
For as long as she could remember Elizabeth had been unable to shake the feeling that there was something out of place, a nagging sensation like a tiny stone in her shoe that she couldn’t get rid of. For some reason she never seemed to fit in. It was as if she was an alien, watching events unfold from behind an invisible force field or extra thick bulletproof glass.
There was no other way to describe it. Some part of her felt as though it belonged to another world.
Exactly which part of her this was and which world it was supposed to belong to were always a bit of a mystery, but the simple, straightforward, unmistakable truth could not be denied.
Elizabeth Harding was not like other children.
Not like them at all.
