The World Between Blinks by Kaufman
Now in paperback from bestselling authors Amie Kaufman and Ryan Graudin comes this first book in a fun, fast-paced middle grade fantasy series perfect for readers who’ve journeyed to Chris Colfer's Land of Stories and gotten lost in Margaret Peterson Haddix's The Missing.
Discover a magical world where lost things are found…
Whenever cousins Jake and Marisol get together, adventure follows. They aspire to be like their late Nana, whose epic trips and treasure hunts were the stuff of family legend. This summer, with the whole family reuniting for one last vacation at Nana’s home, the cousins are in for a legendary trip of their own.
Following a map Nana left behind, Jake and Marisol sneak out to a nearby lighthouse—then accidentally slip into The World Between Blinks, where all kinds of lost things (and people!) end up. Everywhere they turn, the cousins discover real mysteries from history—plus some they thought were only myths.
But the man holding the key to Jake and Marisol’s return journey doesn’t want to be found… And if the cousins don’t catch him fast, they could end up lost in this world forever.
