Falling In by Frances O'Roark Dowell

On the day that Isabelle begins to hear a persistent buzzing noise, she is sent to the principal's office by her teacher. While awaiting her turn, she opens a closet door and tumbles into another world: a world of children on the run from a child-eating witch. When Isabelle and a younger child meet a kind woman living alone in a cottage in the forest, Isabelle feels so comfortable and familiar: but who is the woman? Falling In is an interesting, well-written, unusual fantasy about an outsider in a strange world, with a good dose of suspense. By the author of Dovey Coe and Chicken Boy. (245 p.)
