about

Sometimes it's not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it's . . . Elliott. He's grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fit-ness involved in swinging swords around. He's a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. De-spite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.Praise for Sarah Rees Bren-nan's books:'Breathtaking-a compulsive, rocketing read.'-Tamora Pierce,New York Times bestselling author'I suspect that word of this magical thriller will pass through the populace with the energy of wind, of fire.'-Gregory Maguire, au-thor ofWicked andEgg and Spoon'From the pitch-perfect opening paragaph, to the heartbreaking final pages... delicious.'-Kirkus (starred review)'A sparkling fantasy that will make you laugh and break your heart.'-Cassandra Clare,New York Times bestselling au-thor'A darkly funny, deliciously thrilling Gothic.'-Kelley Armstrong,New York Times bestselling author'A laugh-out-loud delight.'-Publishers Weekly'Brennan takes the genres of young adult, fantasy, and romance, and through her own writerly, alchemical process converts them into something new and strange and lovely.'-Kelly Link, author ofPretty Mon-stersSarah Rees Brennanwas born and raised in Ireland and now travels the world writing, teaching and confusing locals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and witty I read this book online before it went through the publishing overhaul and all the changes made just made it cleverer. The basic premise is pretty familiar but immediately unique with the "so, we have magic powers because we CAN'T walk through a wall?" and it gets better from there. The fantasy of this book is awesomely done and honestly? Enviable. And above all, the writing is funny and true to life. Some of the plot at the end, when things were really coming together, really hit me in the heart. The realities of not knowing how to properly related to other people because of our difficulties was perfectly stated. It was expertly done. Seriously though, read this book. You won't regret it. And I say that as somebody who hasn't bought a book before this in over a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pure joy Portal fantasies have been around for a long time now, books where our hero steps through a magical door/wall/wardrobe/dumpster and into a world not their own. Elliot is the hero I have been waiting for: prickly, undersized, by turns amazed and horrified by the new realities of his life. "Have you no ways to make her better faster?" Elliot asked. "This is a magical fantasy land. Have you no mystical unguents?" The medic gave him a flat look. "What." "Be straight with me here," said Elliot. "Do we have aspirin?" "No," said the medic. Elliot is bad at making friends, but his friendships are the heart of this story. I cheered watching him falteringly learn how to trust and love (and run away, very very fast). I read the book three times in a row. The thing about In Other Lands is that it's everything I never knew I needed, exactly at the time I needed it. Grim reality is a bit hard to take right now, and although there are some grim events in this book, the story carries along on a tide of joy. It is FUN to read, and it made me laugh and feel hopeful; I can think of no better gift right now. I desperately want other people to read it. I would follow you around with a copy if I could, pestering you until you agreed just to shut me up (like Elliot, I have No Chill). #plumreview
