When Jack's seven year old sister Jenny disappears during a game of Hide and Seek, he and his parents are overwhelmed with grief. When 15 year old Jack and his best friend Finn get the chance to follow into the strange world that swallowed her, he hopes to find Jenny and bring her home. But the blood of children is a commodity in the fantastical land of Frey. The children there can't return. In addition to escaping the creatures around them, Jack and Finn wrestle with their own secrets which could change their lives forever.

Back home, their friend Millie is the dealing with murderous changelings who don't want their originals to return.

"If Alice or Dorothy had a gay big brother who was desperate to get his little sister home, and if Wonderland or Oz were much more dangerous places... that's the core of this fantasy-adventure queer tale of coming-out."

"Beneath the love of absurdity, the satirical observations, swashbuckling adventure, strange creatures, and moments of horror, there is a pervasive sense of kindness in this book."

"An epic of great imagination and ridiculous delights."

NOTE: Though this book is not sexually explicit, Frey is a world where mermaids do not wear tops, monsters do not always wear pants, and teenage boys sometimes think about sex. Corresponding body parts are occasionally mentioned. This book is not intended for young readers. And there is a fair bit of poetry if you worry about that sort of thing.
