The first decade of the twentieth century is coming to a close, and San Francisco is still recovering from the great earthquake of 1906. Isabel watched the destruction safely from her window, sheltered within her high-society world. Isabel isn't the kind of girl who goes on adventures. But that all changes when she stumbles through the invisible barrier that separates the human world from the fairy world. She quickly finds herself caught up in an age-old war and fighting on the side of the Seelie - the good fairies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[The City on the Other Side] is a story where there aren't many good or bad creatures, but instead good or bad choices, making this adventure a fun story with a warm heart."--Booklist

"Featuring a diverse cast of humans (brown-skinned Isabel and her family seem to be Latinx) and fairies, Robinson's colorful, dynamic artwork crackles with spirited fun and portrays San Francisco and its fairy-realm equivalent in broad, evocative panels."--Kirkus

"This will be a sure hit among Avatar: The Last Airbender readers, and it could also serve as a first-time foray into GNs for faerie fans."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Swirling, Art Deco-flavored artwork by Robinson...offers a wealth of fairy splendor. Scott...crafts a story that operates smoothly and stays taut...There's freshness in the nonwhite main roles--Isabel is Latina and Benjie is Filipino..."--Publishers Weekly
