But when a pair of mysterious strangers -- a boy and his guardian -- show up at the lighthouse, things start to go very wrong. Hannah's life is shattered. And the door is now wide open. In order to save herself and her family, Hannah must walk through this door. Into another world. A world where she doesn't belong. A world that wants to capture her and make sure she never makes it back home. In THE DOOR, author Andy Marino gives readers an extraordinary adventure in a place they have never, ever seen before.

The Door based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Picked this up to read to my daughter. I have read books like Night Gardener, Doll Bones, without issues. Could'nt finish this book. But there are 2 or 3 characters that start out as imaginary in the main characters head, then show up as real. But many times its not clear if they are still in her head or really there, more then one imaginary character in scenes at same time. Very hard to keep track of whats going on.
