April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Elsewhere, Vol 1 by Jay Faerber, illustrated by Sumeyye Kesgin

Elsewhere, Vol. 1 Elsewhere, Vol. 1 by Jay Faerber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting take on the Amelia Earhart mystery: after the engine failed on their fateful trip, Fred Noonan and Amelia Earhart parachute away from the plane. However, Amelia finds herself falling towards a bright light and falls thru this light into an alternate universe. Not knowing where Fred is, she convinces two of the locals to help her storm the castle of the area's overlord, in hopes of saving Fred. Of course, this doesn't go entirely according to plan, and Amelia must make decisions then on how to save herself and get back home.

I've always been intrigued by the Amelia Earhart mystery, so this was an easy buy for me. The character-driven storytelling and simplistic, cartoon-ish yet solid art really made this a great book. Recommended!
