In Other Lands

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed Akata Witch, then you’ll love In Other Lands.

“I love this book so much. It’s just so fun, and so healing as a queer person to read a book reminiscent of all the fantasies I read as a kid, but with a bi main character, a deconstruction of patriarchy, witty commentary about how maybe being a child soldier in a magic world isn't actually a best case scenario, and mermaids. I listened to this book on a walk when I had lost my earbuds and when Elliott screaming about an elf brothel played loudly, I got weird looks from someone walking their dog. The narrator is excellent and I do love a good British accent. Also, this book is what made me realize that I love the idiots to lovers trope—the romance is just so GOOD in such a wonderfully frustrating way.”

Description

The Borderlands aren't like anywhere else. Don't try to smuggle a phone or any other piece of technology over the wall that marks the Border—unless you enjoy a fireworks display in your backpack. (Ballpoint pens are okay.) There are elves, harpies, and—best of all as far as Elliot is concerned—mermaids. Elliot? Who's Elliot? Elliot is thirteen years old. He's smart and just a tiny bit obnoxious. Sometimes more than a tiny bit. When his class goes on a field trip and he can see a wall that no one else can see, he is given the chance to go to school in the Borderlands.

It turns out that on the other side of the wall, classes involve a lot more weaponry and fitness training and fewer mermaids than he expected. On the other hand, there's Serene-Heart-in-the-Chaos-of-Battle, an elven warrior who is more beautiful than anyone Elliot has ever seen, and then there's her human friend Luke: sunny, blond, and annoyingly likeable. There are lots of interesting books. There's even the chance Elliot might be able to change the world.

In Other Lands is the exhilarating new book from beloved and bestselling author Sarah Rees Brennan. It's a novel about surviving four years in the most unusual of schools, about friendship, falling in love, diplomacy, and finding your own place in the world—even if it means giving up your phone.
