The Land of Neverendings

This is a very good book about a girl called Emily struggling to come to terms with her disabled sister's death. Emily lives in the old village of Barkstone with her parents. She is sad and distance at home and in school after Holly dies , spends all her free time writing in her new notebook about Bluey and Holly and Smockeroon; the place where all the toys live.
Emily's life is starting to get better as she discovers the land of Neverendings is real. However, Smockeroon is in danger and needs help. Will Emily make things right and make some new friends along the way.
I think the blurb makes it sound a bit young but the book is very good and think everyone will enjoy it. It is sad but funny at the same time. Emily takes you with her as she struggles through the story with loss weighing her down and makes you support her in the fight for all to be restored in the human world. I rate this book 5 stars.
