By Lynda

TadTad hates his life: school, home, everything. Ever since the accident, he’s felt alone, bullied and scared. It’s as though he’s been cursed for wishing bad things.

If he can win the challenge for the Seven Keys, he can change all that and have the life he craves. But if he fails, he will be trapped behind the Gate in a world where his worst nightmares become very, very real.




Storm has been trapped behind the Gate for two years now. He’s angry, bitter and he wants revenge. But more than anything he wants to escape back to his world – and Tad is his only way out.




Lucy likes both the boys, but she also wants to go home. Having failed the challenge, she lives at the ‘School of No Returns’, behind the Gate. She hasn’t seen her father for six months now and she’s worried. He was unwell before she went ‘missing.’ If she doesn’t find a way to return home, he might very well die. She has to act – and she has to act now.
