Nine-year-old Adi is the clumsiest kid ever. After she oversleeps, misses her school bus, and hears her parents fighting, Adi wants nothing more than to escape for a while. But after her mother drops her off at school, Adi has no idea her wish is about to come true. During first period recess, Adi follows a dragonfly inside a bush on the playground. But suddenly, a violent thunderstorm approaches, the ground trembles, the earth cracks-and Adi finds herself precariously hanging from a branch above a huge hole. Moments later Adi's arms give out, and she plunges far beneath the earth into a strange new world. Adi quickly learns that she has been called to this land for a purpose and that she has a journey to complete. Adi's new dragonfly friend, Flutter, says that she has been to the kingdom before, but Adi cannot remember anything about it. As Adi begins her expedition, she makes a mistake that transports her back to her own world-where she makes a shocking discovery. In this charming fantasy tale, a young girl is swept away on an exciting and dangerous adventure, where she soon realizes she must summon the courage to help save a dying land-before it is too late.
