REVIEWS FROM AMAZON:
1) Many things happened; but this girl was a Christian and she would see God's will. I couldn't put it down. It is three a.m.
2)After a couple of chapters in, I could hardly lay the book down. The amount of feeling that I got from the story brought tears to my eyes many times. Thank you for a great story that glorifies God and his power over our lives.😃
This book is the compilation of Other World, Night Stalkers, and The Wizard.
Three teens, Brainy, Wendy, and Thumper , are drawn through a doorway into another world after following
the directions in a book that they found in a reputed haunted house.
As they struggle to find their way back home they encounter many obstacles. Some are dangerous and some are rather humorous.
Things change drastically when an accident gives them super powers.
