Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Traveling in a world of evil, with creatures beyond your imagination, Coraline, by Neil Gaiman, is a book that will twist your mind into thinking that she is good. The genre of the book is fantasy. This book would appeal to anyone looking for a good fantasy book.

Coraline is about 9 or 10 years old when she finds the key to the door. She that I am relating to is Coraline’s other mother. She turns out good, but you better think twice because she then turns evil. Now that Coraline is trapped in her “other world” she can’t get out! Will Coraline ever find a way out? Or will she be trapped forever?

Do you want a book that goes through different worlds in your own house? Well, in my book Coraline, she steps through a door to fine her self in another similar world as hers. Things seem marvelous, but there’s another mother and another father. They want her to be theirs forever. They want to change her and never let her go. Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and courage if she is to save herself and return to her own life.
