Book 1 in the '100 Cupboards Trilogy': This is another story that eventually leads to 'we aren't in Kansas anymore'! It starts off slow, but midway through the book, it picks up steam and never slacks. There are elements of the 2006 movie, 'The Lake House' and of the books: 'Indian In The Cupboard', 'A Wrinkle in Time' and 'Narnia' -- where the ordinary crosses over to the magical. This is a story of inter-dimensional travel and of alternate realities akin to Narnia, only that they don't begin in a closet, but in 100 Cupboards. Onwards to Books 2 & 3.
