Imaginalis - J.M. DeMatteis

Publisher:  Katherine Tegen Books
Pages:  256
Source:  Received a copy for review from the Picnic Basket
Genre:  Middle Grades Fantasy

Mehera is a twelve year old who is caught up in a books series.  When the series is suddenly discontinued she become rude and sullen.  Her friends and father try to encourage her to forget about it.  She believes the land of Imaginalis is real.  She is right.  It is up to her to help the Imaginalis save their land.  I enjoyed this book and know I will have a difficult time keeping this book on my shelves. I didn't immediately like Mehera. She came off as rude to her friends and especially her father. This book seems to be all about change. I believe the thing I loved the most was the use of the imagination. Our children today seem to have lost the use of their imagination. This book lends itself to so many creative writing projects. I hope to read more by this author.
