Series: Abarat (Book #1)
by Clive Barker

Candy Quackenbush believes there has to be more to life than chickens, which is all the people in her Minnesota town talk about. After leaving school, she encounters John Mischief and begins a journey that takes her to a strangely familiar magical land.

As Candy travels the twenty-five islands of the Abarat, she tries to piece together why she has come to this mysterious place and why the evil Lord Carrion desperately wants to track her down.
