Brody Fair feels like nobody gets him: not his overworked parents, not his genius older brother, and definitely not the girls in the projects set on making his life miserable. Then he meets Nico, an art student who takes Brody to Everland, a "knock-off Narnia" that opens its door at 11:21pm each Thursday for Nico and his band of present-day misfits and miscreants. Here Brody finds his tribe and a weekly respite from a world where he feels out of place. But when the doors to Everland begin to disappear, Brody is forced to make a decision: He can say goodbye to Everland and to Nico, or stay there and risk never seeing his family again. Will Nico take the last bus to Everland?

*Starred Review* Rescued from bullies by 17-year-old Nico, Brody, 15, immediately crushes on the beautiful older boy and is thrilled when Nico invites him to meet up the following Thursday. To Brody's amazement, Nico ushers him through a magical doorway into an alternative world, a demiparadise called Everland, where no one can be hurt, no one needs to sleep, no one can die, and no matter how long you stay, when you return to the real world, only moments have passed. Brody falls in love with Everland even as he is falling deeper in love with Nico, who is also gay. Meanwhile, in the real world, life is grim. Brody's dad is ill; his family is in dire financial straits; andâperhaps worst of allâBrody feels ignored by his parents and like he's always second best to his brilliant older brother. What if Brody could live with Nico in Everland, well, forever? Cameron's debt to Barrie's Peter Pan is obvious: Brody is referred to as a lost boy; he and Nico find a pirate ship in Everland. And yet the author is very much the master of her own original material. Everland is a lovely conceit amid beautifully realized worlds and wonderfully individual, empathetic characters. The result is a memorable fantasy to occupy a proud place on the shelf beside Peter and Wendy. Grades 7-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
