Out of This World: Douglas E. Richards
Zachary & Jenna Lane are a brother and sister pair who would much rather tease and trick each other than work together. But when their parents vanish through a mysterious shimmering portal, they join forces and adventure through a series of fantastic worlds in an effort to rescue them. But each world is more treacherous than the last, and staying alive for even a day will be the ultimate test of their wits, courage, and determination. And when they finally puzzle out what is happening to them and why, the impossible happens: things get even worse. Because far more is at stake than just their lives. And the odds against them could not be any greater.
