The Land of Neverendings

I thoroughly enjoyed "The Land of Neverendings" by Kate Saunders. After her sister Holly's death, Emily, the protagonist is struggling with her grief. Soon she discovers the world powered by imagination where all the human and toys live after they’ve left the Hard World - The Land of Neverendings.
There is an excellent balance between the dialogue and narrative of the story. The language is extremely descriptive and creates a beautiful atmosphere and setting which suits the fantasy theme.
The plot is quite well-constructed and each element makes sense. The ending is believable and a really lovely finish to the book.
The characters are all convincing and are relatable (even the toys have realistic character traits). Both Emily and Ruth develop during the book, as they learn to cope with their grief. The interactions between the characters are convincing and the thoughts and emotions of the characters are revealed extremely well.
I would recommend this book to younger readers (8-11), but I think that it is enjoyable for people of all ages!
