The Borderlands arenât like anywhere else. Donât try to smuggle a phone or any other piece of technology over the wall that marks the Border â unless you enjoy a fireworks display in your backpack. (Ballpoint pens are okay.) There are elves, harpies, and â best of all as far as Elliot is concerned â mermaids.
"Whatâs your name?"
"Serena?" Elliot asked.
"Serene," said Serene. "My full name is Serene-Heart-in-the-Chaos-of-Battle."
Elliotâs mouth fell open. "That is badass."
Elliot? Whoâs Elliot? Elliot is thirteen years old. Heâs 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, thereâs Serene-Heart-in-the-Chaos-of-Battle, an elven warrior who is more beautiful than anyone Elliot has ever seen, and then thereâs her human friend Luke: sunny, blond, and annoyingly likeable. There are lots of interesting books. Thereâs 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. Itâs 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 â even if it means giving up your phone.
