I read a couple books from this series over ten years ago and it has nagged at me ever since. The books were rather short and had scenes from the story on the cover. I don’t think it was a widely popular series either. I honestly don’t remember too many details other than:

  • The characters are a group of teens (maybe four or five, with a mix of male and female) from the human world

  • They accidentally get transported to a fantasy realm but they don’t know how it happens; they talk about events leading up to their arrival to figure things out

  • The characters almost seemed like they had amnesia and had to figure out who they were

  • They retain their normal/human identities

  • They get transported back and forth between the worlds (I believe)

  • They regain their human identity - so had they been turned into monsters or something? – Jenayah Jan 31 at 20:28
  • @jenayah: Could be they retained their essential appearance (no one changed gender, race, or species) or just indicating that, even if they didn't remember who they were, their personality was unchanged. – FuzzyBoots Jan 31 at 21:07
  • They retained their appearance and essential personalities other than forgetting what happened. – aj occi Feb 1 at 23:39
  • There is a series called Everworld by K.A.Applegate which has similar content. There are 5 main characters, 3 male, 2 female. They are transported to a fantasy world and are trying to work out how to survive and get back home. It's a teen series, so the books are pretty short.

Since it appears this was the right answer, I've shifted the comment to the answers section. Glad I could be of assistance.

  • This is the Same. K.A. Applegate who initially penned the Animorphs books, correct? – Russ Rainford Jun 10 at 18:55

    Yes, @Russ Rainford, it certainly is the same K.A.Applegate (Katherine Applegate and her husband Michael Grant, writing together under the name K. A. Applegate) who penned Animorphs and other books including the SF series called Remnants. – Teryl V Jun 11 at 5:14
