Because she insists on fighting with words instead of her fists, 13-year-old Nita is regularly tormented by a gang of classmates. One day, running to escape their blows, she hides in the only safe place nearby: the library. When a book about wizardry catches her eye, Nita finds the help she needs in its pages. As she moves from chapter to chapter, Nita learns more sophisticated spells. Soon, stepping through a worldgate, she enters a shadowy city swirling with vicious taxicabs and carnivorous fireplugs. What begins as a simple quest quickly becomes a struggle to keep a powerful and ominous force from passing back into Nita's world.

Ranked with the best of Madeleine L'Engle and Diana Wynne Jones, Diane Duane's magical tale of wizardry and wisdom has become a modern fantasy classic. Christina Moore's delightful narration captures all the excitement and danger in this thrilling fantasy adventure.

    " One of the students at Sunnyside said he really liked this book, so I borrowed it from the library. I was disappointed. I found it wordy and overstuffed with action. I mean, come on, a girl decides to become a wizard and is instantly saddled with saving New York City? Give her a break! I also didn't like the opening scene with the main character being beaten up by a gang of bullies. But there were a few parts I did like, especially when there was acknowledgment that between good and evil there are gradations and gray areas. And I liked the wizard's oath quite a bit. I might even copy it and put it up in the kids' room. "

    " This book started out the way I remember Never Ending Story. It also has some things I wonder if J.K. Rowling maybe read and took ideas from for Harry Potter. It started out really fun and interesting and then became more and more random and strange. I still liked it, but there were times I thought, 'what am I reading?' But I guess that is fantasy for ya! "

    " Re-read 9/8/08. I find it quite hilarious that I got a bad case of the hiccups as I was completing my re-read; anyone familiar with the plot will understand why. "
