Joshua Bogo | 1 comments The idea behind the book is that writing in a blank book ( a special kind of book) creates a world inside that book that you can enter into, but without a linking book you can never return. the main character goes underground to where a society used to live surrounded by these books, but somehow passed away. He is lead underground by his relative (uncle/father, don't remember), who has salvaged many blank books, is creating worlds out of the dead society, and is teaching it to him.

When did you read it or when was it published?
Children's, YA, or adult?
Author female or male?
Remember the cover?
