Determined to rescue his baby sister from the Fairies, John Nesbit travels into the world of the Strangers and discovers an unusual world of human-headed flying dogs and a hollow man.
When John Nesbit discovers that his little sister has been stolen by a weird group of fairies and replaced with a changeling, he knows he must rescue her. Although his journey to the world of the Strangers will lead to confrontations with terrifying creatures, John is determined to return his sister home safely through his own determination and the helpful insight of a classmate.
Simultaneously funny and startling, The Same Place but Different is a richly satisfying adventure that combines British mythology and oral traditions with contemporary characters and settings.
