Into the Sideways World Kindle Edition
The moving, funny, thrilling and adventured-filled new novel for readers of 10 and up from bestselling author Ross Welford.
When twelve-year-olds Willa and Manny hear of a mysterious animal prowling their town, they are determined to prove it is real. Following the creature into a cave one full moon, they are swept into an alternate, ideal, world – one where pollution and conflict have been conquered decades ago and even their own families seem happier.
But when they return, no one believes them. So, with a global war looming in their own world, their quest for proof of the Sideways World becomes ever-more urgent, in a nail-biting race against time.
And Willa and Manny will have to make an impossible decision: because once you find a perfect world, can you ever leave it behind . . .?

Where flying cars roam the skies. Where no one ever steals your stuff. And where weird animals with the face of a cat, the body of a dog, and the fins of a shark exist.
Sounds too bizarre, right? That’s what 12-year-old Willa and her friend Manny think too. Problem is, this isn’t their world. They have accidentally discovered it. And what’s more, Willa finds her long-dead grandfather is alive and well in this world. So is her brother who had passed away as a baby 17 years ago.
And when they step back into their own, a world where World War 3 looms large, no one believes them.
I have long been fascinated with the idea of alternative realities and Into the Sideways World by Ross Welford does great justice to the concept. It’s a middle-grade novel handled deftly. The concept of the alternate dimension is explained logically without ever going overboard, and the author paints a delightful picture of a world that could be. The book is fast-paced, thrilling, full of adventure, and has a positive message for young adults. Most importantly, it triggers your imagination and keeps you entertained right till the end. Speaking of the end… The epilogue was just so heartwarming (some might call it cheesy, too) that I just had to read it twice.
Ross Welford has a knack for touching on subjects that captivate me the most – immortality (The 1000-Year-Old-Boy), invisibility (What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible), time travel (Time Travelling with a Hamster), and now parallel universes. He also tends to bring me out of my fiction-reading slumps with his charming stories. I desperately needed something like this right now.
