Falling In by Frances O'Raork Dowell, 245 pages, read by Melody, on 02/21/2012

Delightful  and fanciful book. This is  the second book this week I’ve read about someone falling into the fairy tale world and both were worthwhile reads.  Falling In is the story of Isabelle, a girl who has always felt different who opens a closet on her way to the principal’s office and finds herself in another world.  She is told there is a witch who eats children in the woods and since since she’s never met a witch, decides to go find her.  I loved the character of Isabelle, who in the strangest of circumstances, takes charge and find her own way.
