On a brisk autumn day, a twelve-year-old boy stands on the shores of
the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort
called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: his father is gone,
his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack
everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back
across America—and into another realm.
One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written,

the journey means even more.
Let the quest begin.
