The Portal House is an amazing book. It is full of adventure, drama, friendship, bullies, and culture. I love this book because of the amazing adventures and friendship between Lizzy and Johnny. I also love how this book has some real things and then some fantasy elements. It is jam-packed, and you'll never want to put the book down. This author adds so much detail and doesn't leave out a thing. It was so fun to read, and I definitely recommend this book to everyone.
