Bullies and monsters, heroes and traps, and 5th Grade and serious issues combine to make a tremendous story about a young girl and her need to escape into a fantasy world. The result is a sad and hopeful hero's journey unlike anything I've read in years. The illustrations are a bit choppy at times, but convey a divide between reality and fantasy quite well. Recommended for anyone who doesn't fit in and especially for those who don't want to.
