First Chapter Review: Seventh Dimension – The Door by Lorilyn Roberts 

Seventh Dimension – The Door by Lorilyn Roberts is a Christian young adult fantasy novel.

BLURB: The Door is the first book in the Seventh Dimension Series that combines contemporary, historical, and fantasy elements into a Christian “coming-of-age” story. A curse put on Shale Snyder, because of a secret, shrouds her with insecurity and fear. Following suspension from school, Shale’s best friend isn’t allowed to see her anymore and she feels abandoned by her family. When a stray dog befriends her, she follows it into the woods. There she discovers a door that leads to another world…

COVER: This is a beautiful cover. The colors, the artwork, and the font all work together nicely to create a cover that catches the eye and makes you want to read what the story is about.

FIRST CHAPTER: While hiding, Shale overhears Judd, Rachel, and Chumana talking about a horrible accident. Two years later, on the way home from school, Judd and Shale have a difference of opinion. That’s when Shale sees the white dog for the first time.

KEEP READING: If it weren’t for the cliffhanger of the white dog appearing at the end of the chapter that piqued my curiosity, I’m really not sure. Judd and Chumana are not likeable from the start. Rachel and Shale engage in a conversation that seems to be nothing more than an info dump on Shale’s life. I might keep reading a chapter or two to see how the story progresses. This book has won numerous awards, so maybe it is just starting off slow for me.
