There's something wrong with the Verdun Street Bridge in Granville. People don't like the way it feels. They take the long way around it if they can - and Alyssha Dodson knows why. A dark doorway under that bridge leads to another world. Alyssha spent a summer there when she was a child. She's promised her father she won't go back. But now she has no choice, does she? A hit-and-run victim from that world has brought her a message of trouble there - a message she doesn't understand, but one she has to deliver. Of course, she has other reasons for going back. There's a place for her in Bandor, better than any place in her own world. It's where she belongs. And there's Kardl - the boy she met there when she was twelve. She's daydreamed about him for all these years, and now he'll be there, waiting for her the way she's waited for him... Won't he?
