Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—Having been accepted into the world of Janus House and its magical inhabitants, Maya Andersen continues to explore their world and her relationship with Rimi, the alien sissimi she bonded with in Thresholds (Viking, 2010). Though Rimi exposes Maya to a wealth of new senses and abilities, the seventh grader still struggles with her limitations and finding her place in the new world that has opened up to her. Questions from prying siblings and meeting strangers with their own secrets (including the proprietor of a comic shop not everyone can see) compound Maya's inner turmoil, and the number of secrets on her conscience tends to leave her bewildered (a feeling readers unfamiliar with the first book may share). Hoffman's knack for invention is evident in the worlds and inhabitants accessible through Janus House's portals, and a gentle magic pervades her writing and the tender friendship between Maya and Rimi.—Christi Esterle, Parker Library, CO
