Blue Rabbit by Jimena I. Novaro
In Knoxville, Tennessee, there's a bridge to another world.
When they first cross it, Erika and her friends feel like they've stumbled into a dream. Erika has always felt that she was meant for more than a normal existence. Haley and her brother Dorian believe in fairytales. Nathan loves the adventure. Sandra is wary, but finds herself drawn in like the others. Magical and mysterious, the other world becomes their little paradise, a place to explore and escape from their everyday lives. Until one night a boy from school, Mike, follows them to the other side―and he's kidnapped by strange and powerful Creatures.
Back home, everyone thinks Erika and the gang are responsible for Mike's disappearance. The dream has become a nightmare. How can they negotiate with these Creatures to rescue Mike and clear their names? And why are the Creatures fixated on Erika, who feels drawn to their world even as she senses the danger?
