Coraline by Neil Gaiman
When I picked up Coraline, I was in the mood for light, quick, and fun. I got all three with this one. It sort of reminded me of The Nightmare Before Christmas. A young girl named Coraline (not Caroline) gets bored and "explores" a lot. In her very own apartment there is a door which is always locked. One day her mom opens it and it's all bricked up, but she forgets to lock it back. Coraline goes back and it is a doorway to the other part of the house which looks exactly like her apartment. Inside everything is like over on her side, only not like it at all. It contains a hint of magic and wonder.....I loved it!
