Sometimes it’s not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it’s . . . Elliott. He’s grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fitness involved in swinging swords around. He’s a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. Despite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.

"A subversive, sneaky, glorious tale of magic, longing, and growing into your wings."

Customer Reviews


This was lovely and witty and thoughtful from start to finish and has easily become one of my top two favorite books ever. Entertaining and heartfelt while providing a running commentary on the foolishness of policing sex and gender and the total awesomeness of mermaids.

Concerns (questions that should be answered in a sequel that should absolutely be written): what happened to the best part of the fake dating trope? Where are the centaurs? Why do unicorns insist on shaming and goring hussies? How will our heroes perfect a partially aquatic mail delivery system? What do mermaid libraries look like? Is there lo tech enough scuba gear that Elliot could find out first hand? If the technology is crafted in the magical otherworld will it still melt and explode? Where’s my Golden wedding? Why did Luke refer to the Championship as some sort of misunderstanding? How will Elliot acquire more pens when he runs out? Will he have to become a criminal for the sake of peace? If (when) Rachel finds out Elliot’s mother is a deadbeat, how mad is she gonna be at that lady? Will it spread through the fam like the Wavechaser news and will they all start making snide remarks whenever in proximity to Elliot’s mother? Please let there be a sequel.
