Rowena thinks the Grimm’s infamous podcasts are simply another teen fad until she finds herself trapped in a land of nightmarish storybook characters. She tries desperately to flee Mezzanine and return home, but Dresdem, Mezzanine’s wicked monarch, plans to use Rowena’s access to her world to bring dark magic and absolute rule into Georgia and beyond.
But when Rowena’s dear friend Madeline falls into Dresdem’s grasp, her battle with him becomes war, and all hopes of home are temporarily thwarted. With the help of an invisible hero, a beast, and an owl, she sets out to free Madeline from a deadening sleep. But Rowena must become her own hero when she finds herself bound by the kingdom’s darkest family. She must make the ultimate choice – align herself with her enemies or live on the run forever.

After finishing this book, I was pulling weeds in my yard and thought, "These weeds are so pretty yet otherworldly, like they jumped over here from Mezzanine." That's what was so neat about this story--it felt real enough that I could think it could happen (the combination of fairy tales was so fun!) and clean enough for my kids to read. -- Mary, Goodreads Reviewer
