From the publisher:
In this grand fantasy, 13-year-old Camille's life is forever changed when she and her friend Salim accidentally pass through a portal to a parallel dimension and enter the magical world of Gwendalavir.
There she discovers that she is originally from that other world, and is, in fact, Ewilan, the daughter of two legendary magicians who sent her to our world to protect her from evil forces in the kingdom. From her parents she has inherited a tremendous gift-the power to imaginate, the ability to manifest things by creating mental images of them. As the epic worldwide battle intensifies, Camille hones the skills that might be the decisive weapon in the struggle of her people to regain power and restore freedom and dignity to Gwendalavir.
Pierre Bottero has created a startlingly coherent imaginary universe that recalls the worlds of J. R. R. Tolkein, C. S. Lewis, and Philip Pullman.
