The Light Between Worlds is a beautiful tale about homecoming, sisterhood, and grief. Starting six years after Evelyn and her siblings have returned from the fantasy world of the Woodlands, Evelyn has still not come to terms with her life in post WWII England and longs to find her way back to the Woodlands. Her sister Philippa has spent the past six years trying to keep Evelyn invested in their life in England, but has recently gone to college in America. The novel, told in two halves, first by Evelyn, and then Philippa, reveals both women as they struggle to make their ways in the world. 
A perfect novel for those who grew up on Narnia but were left at a loss with Susan's story or the way the Pevensies aged out of the fantasy land.

"Twins Brysen and Kylee have very different goals, but each has abilities better suited for the other's dream. With their father dead, they both think they'll finally achieve their goals, but are soon swept up in a plot to capture the mysterious Ghost Eagle, desired by friend and foe alike. The worldbuilding is well done and reveals an elaborate set of competing religions and cultures. The characters are complex, narration switching between the twins who love each other and cannot understand each other in equal measure. This is a strong start to a new series." --Gwendolyn

"From the first chapter, the reader understands that Annabelle once experienced a great tragedy that left her deeply traumatized. Then you discover that it was in the recent past. Then, Annabelle starts running. For me, one of the most amazing parts of this book is the way that you are taken on Annabelle's journey just by reading; as she crosses the United States on foot, discovering more and more about herself, the reader learns more and more about the tragedy that set her running in the first place. Integrated throughout the story are important passages that highlight the unique dangers of being a woman in today's society, and the novel as a whole does an excellent job examining the long lasting repercussions of these unique dangers, and all violence against women. Caletti's writing is impeccable, both in content and in style. The story is crafted to perfection, and I became truly engrossed in each and every character. I laughed, I cried, I shook my head, and I filled with rage. This book will make you feel, but it will also make you contemplate some very serious, very important issues. An incredible read, through and through." --Abby
