Publisher's Summary

A boy and girl from different worlds will meet in yet another... 

Eliza’s life has been fair. She’s got a good family, she’s the star of the basketball team, and Chris, her crush, is coming around. School’s a breeze—with exception to English class. English is more of a squall...but soon she’ll face much bigger strife than a blemished GPA. 

For Milo, things have been harder. Talented though he is as an artist, his nerdy gamer reputation proceeds him, and, wholly lacking in confidence, he can’t imagine the likes of Eliza returning the feelings he’s fostered. 

It won’t be until the two discover a gate to another, dangerous dimension that either can prove who they really are...or die, attempting to learn, themselves. While books will prove the portal to a place replete with creatures that are meant to be fictitious, it’s the exit bound to be a problem...bearing one solution: Eliza and Milo will never return, unless they solve the mystery of the fabled Red Ribbon Tree.

Creative and Exciting

I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining this book was. I laughed, cried and gasped. I couldn’t stop listening. The characters are your friends or people you may know. The author allowed me to see the different perspectives while making me feel like I was there too. This is a true gem. It is a coming of age story that the lessons could relate to anyone. I would recommend this book to middle school aged children as beyond. Many different age groups could relate to these characters and the fantasy comes alive. I can’t wait to see the author’s next book.

Entertaining Story

This was such a fun story, both creative and new. Brittni Chenelle changed the old trope of the male sports hero and nerdy female so that the female character was the sport superstar and the male character was the nerdy geek who after being transported to a magical land have to learn to depend on each other to return to the real world safely. I recommend this story highly. The song at the end of the audiobook recaps the emotions of the main characters perfectly. Kim Pruitt does a good job with the narration. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

A mix between a Percy Jackson and Narnia feel

Milo is a shy gamer and artist who has a crush on the super athletic and popular girl Eliza. When they both find a book that turns into a portal to Involutia they have to put aside their differences and find a way home. In the world of Involutia books are not only tools to learn from but literal portals to other realms. Milo and Eliza fall into a book that transports them to a world they have never seen before. Their quest to go home turns from just saving themselves to saving all of Involutia. This middle grade novel has adorable character building with enough preteen awkwardness to make even fighting dragons feel realistic. Milo and Eliza must discover what it means to be strong in their own ways and just how far they are willing to go to get home. A mix between a Percy Jackson and Narnia feel, this split POV will have your heart cringing and cheering at the same time. Starting off in the "real world" Milo and Eliza are practically strangers but they have to set that aside and work together to escape dark forests, wars, dragons, elven adventures and a magic library all in search of the Red Ribbon Tree.

Good story

The story was good, and a clean YA. I liked the story line. This is a book I would definitely recommend for my preteen child.

Different

I received the audible free for an honest review. This was my first time reading this author but it won't be the last. It was different enough to keep my interest. I loved Eliza and Milo's relationship.

Coming of age story

You’ll never look at a book report the same way again. This story started out a bit strange but it took off after a little and got more and more interesting to me. I loved the books as portals and the different POVs. These two characters knew each other kind of from the real world but were stuck together in this other world. There are a lot of questions that come up throughout the story and it does a good job answering them. I enjoyed the elevens and the band of fighters. The professor was an interesting character and one of the two main characters has better instincts than the other in certain things. They made a good pairing and it was a really good book.

Cute!

This story was really a clean YA story. The story is told by Eliza and Milo’s POV. The story begins from the current time and then transports them to a whole other world. The world is filled of awesome creatures. It follows their journey in this unique world where they have to write their own story. I enjoyed the story and thought it was cute. I listened to the audiobook and thought it was okay. I thought the intro and ending was cute as well. It’s not often where you find a audiblebook that has two songs. ❤️

A boy and a girl in an unforgettable adventure...

Loved the musical beginning and end of this book. Really nice touch. The story is about Eliza and Milo who both find a book with no writing. When they open it the fall onto a different world called Involutia that has a crazy professor and challenges for the two to overcome. A great story that kept me hooked with dragons, swords, bows and arrows. Plus a slow burning love story. What more could you want. The narrator was good at doing Eliza's and Milo's voices. The professor sound a bit nutty and annoying but I think that was his character. He was a bit unlikeable and as the story unfolded it all made sense. I first came across this author when I heard the book The Fae and the Fallen. That is still my favourite audio book but this one was really good too. I received a free copy of this book from the author but the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
