Melanie Tamaki is human?but her parents aren?t. They are from Half World, a Limbo between our world and the afterlife, and her father is still there. When her mother disappears, Melanie must follow her to Half World?and neither of them may return alive.

Half World is vivid, visceral, unforgettable, a combination of prose and images that will haunt you.
