Goto, Hiromi -- Half World

Another kids' book. Girl travels to fantasy world; but the story is rooted in Japanese culture, rather than the usual portal-fantasy wellspring of British folklore and history. (The author is Canadian but was born in Japan, I believe.) Vivid; the antagonist is about as nightmarish as I've seen, in the disgusting mode. My only complaint is that the teenage protagonist talks a bit too much like a life-experienced adult, particularly when observing grownups. But that's a tiny little complaint.
