Madison (madisonfromgoodreads) | 8 comments A patron requested a book with the following details:
- She read it in fourth grade (she's probably about 11 now, so published in 2015ish or before)
- The cover has a green house on it
- The author "looks like a vampire" in his bio photo
- The book is about a boy who goes out a window into a magical alternate dimension
- For every day that passes in the alternate dimension, a year passes in the "real world"

please help!

There is a mentor of sorts who brings the boy into the other dimension, but that's all she remembered.

Was the dimension good, or more like a purgatory/negative place?

If it’s the latter, it could be The Thief of Always
