This stirring coming-of-age novel presents issues such as domestic violence and emotional abuse, as well as cultural and sexual identity.

Adoni is a teenaged girl who lives a downtown apartment with her mother, an emotionally and physically abusive woman who drinks too much. One evening, Adoni finds herself drawn to the enchanting voice of a man singing in the alley beneath her bedroom window. The man, Ritter, brings Adoni to the Welcome, a northern colony of the In-Between world, where young people who have been rescued from harm are kept safe by their sworn immortal protectors, the pipers. But when the Welcome is attacked by changelings—led by the vicious and charismatic Sylvester—and a centuries-old grudge spills over the edge and threatens to destroy the colony and everyone who lives there, Adoni must find the strength and courage within to stop the oncoming war.
Charlene Challenger is a writer, a graduate of the Ryerson Theatre School, and the first recipient of the Gladys Shibley Mitchell Scholarship Award. This is her first novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally, beautifully written! I was drawn to this book because it's the only one of its kind.....I am so glad I picked it up! It is VERY hard to put down! Challenger's imaginative, exciting writing style made every page, every chapter GREAT. It is so refreshing to finally find a YA novel with some creativity, and DIVERSITY. Hats off to the author for creating a book that is fresh, wonderful, and in a league of its own....I am dying for a sequel!

Editorial Reviews

"The book is about so many things . . . making choices, finding your identity, fitting in, anger, manipulation, dealing with abuse (bullying). It is a great journey that brings forward many social issues that our young generation faces on a daily basis." —
