Peggy is a headstrong teenager craving independence. Suddenly, she falls into a long-forgotten fantasy world, calling Notherland. She's astonished to see old friends there, including fairy-like creatures called Nordlings. But there are new elements in Peggy's enchanted world: a mysterious young man for whom she feels a strong attraction, and nineteenth-century Arcic explorer Sir John Franklin and his wife, Lady Jane. Now an evil force called the Nobodaddy is destroying Peggy's imaginary world. As the creator, Peggy may be the only one who can stop him. Should she take on the dangerous quest to find and destroy him, or go back to the real life?
