The Portal House
Kelsey Ruud, author
When two twelve-year olds, Lizzie and Johnny, explore the local haunted house, they don’t discover your traditional ghosts. Instead, they find a house with a mind of its own and portals that can take them to other places across the world. Sure it’s nice getting a little free sightseeing in at Times Square in New York City or at Notre Dame in Paris, France, but the House isn’t the only thing with magic. There are witches and warlocks and even ridiculous talking statues to contend with and the kids are even able to learn a little magic of their own. But where there are good people, there are also evil ones and this happens even in the world of magic. An evil warlock wants that portal house and he knows Lizzie and Johnny are the key. So now it's up to all their new friends and every bit of magic they've learned to keep the kids safe.
