In this page-flipping visionary eco-fantasy, Katie's adventures when, already troubled by problems at home and school, an earthquake tumbles her into another world. Thrust into a dangerous initiation quest, Katie's only chance to get home is to learn to accept and forgive herself for behavior she regrets as well as cooperate with an arrogant alien boy. On the journey, the two of them encounter all sorts of extraordinary characters including a shape-shifting tree spirit, story-loving water god, baby dragon unsure what to eat, nature devas luring her into the world of dreams, and the dreaded Poison One. Will Katie be able to clear the poison in her own heart enough to escape being sucked in by the Poison One? And will she grow into her talent of listening to plants and animals enough to find the elusive Winged Ones--the only beings capable of taking them home?
