Foster kids Morgan and Eli are not settling in well to their new living situation: they struggle in school, they don't get along very well, and their white foster parents don't understand the complexities of their Indigenous background. After a disastrous dinner, they discover a doorway in the attic of their foster home that leads to a world that's been suffering from a never-ending winter, inhabited by bipedal and talking animals that need Morgan and Eli's help to bring back the seasons. Funny, thrilling, and thought-provoking, this book is great for those who loved Narnia and would like to explore a new and diverse fantasy series.
