9780061732867: Imaginalis

What if your dearest friends were trapped in a world that was dying?

Mehera Beatrice Crosby has one great love—and it's not following the latest health fads (like her school friend Celeste), and it's definitely not Andrew Suarez (even if he does have a ridiculous crush on her). It's Imaginalis, her favorite book series.

When she learns that the long-awaited last book in the series has been canceled, Mehera is devastated—until strange events begin unfolding, and she realizes that her Imaginalian friends are counting on her to rescue them from their fading existence. Soon Mehera finds herself traveling between her world and the kingdom of Imaginalis. But what will happen when she accidentally brings the villain of the series, Pralaya, back to Earth, along with Prince Imagos and his Companions? Has Mehera doomed both worlds beyond repair, or is there a way to save Mehera's world—and Imaginalis, too?

Expert storyteller J. M. DeMatteis's richly imagined fantasy is a fast-paced adventure and a testament to the power of loyal friendship, creativity, and imagination.

About the Author:

J. M. DeMatteis has been a professional musician, a rock journalist, and a writer for film and television, but he's best known as a critically acclaimed, Eisner Award–winning writer of comic books. In addition to his work on Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, and many other pop culture icons, he is the author of an acclaimed autobiographical graphic novel, Brooklyn Dreams, as well as the Abadazad series for young readers. Mr. DeMatteis lives with his family in New York. This is his first novel for HarperCollins.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-7–Mehera, an avid fan of the “Imaginalis” books, is anxiously awaiting the next installment. Devastated when she finally learns that the novel has been canceled, she tries to contact the author, to no avail. When she begins to receive strange messages and is eventually transported to Nolandia, the 12-year-old discovers that her long-held belief that Imaginalis is real is, in fact, true. The denizens of this world–including the seer Prognostica, valiant Prince Imagos, and the wise, Ganesh-esque Lord Nossyss–will cease to exist unless she can find the author and convince her to write the rest of the story. Fighting against the youngster and her companions is the villainous Pralaya, who seeks to become a resident of Earth and destroy it as he has long sought to destroy Imaginalis. The underpinnings of DeMatteis's novel are reminiscent of “The Chronicles of Narnia” with its religious parallels (in this case, Hinduism), humans who are responsible for the fate of an imaginary world, and powerful leader who is willing to sacrifice all for the good of his people. Some parts of the plot seem underdeveloped, and Mehera herself is not a particularly engaging character. However, the premise is intriguing and will delight readers who imagine themselves in the pages of their favorite books.–Karen E. Brooks-Reese, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PAα(c) Copyright 2010.
