Isabella bean is a young woman who feels like an outsider. She doesn't fit in with the other girls in her class and has different interest than most kids her age. Isabella feels that she is not a normal kid she thinks she is a changeling (someone who was switched at birth with a fairy or troll). One day she is in the nurse's office and is going into the closet to find a bandaid for another students. When she opens the door she discovers where the humming sound is coming from and falls into a different world, and a different school. HOwever, the students at the new school think she is a witch because of her clothing choices. Isabella discovers a witch in the community that eats children and needs to be stopped. This book is a great piece for children who are struggling with feeling different. This book shows that being different can lead to change for the good.
