I read a book 12 years ago. I believe it had Ever on its name.

It was about these high schoolers that went to sleep and woke up in a world of magic or medieval. I do know that when they went to sleep that would travel back and forth. I know it's not much but if you can help thank you.

  • What about the world was magical? Do you remember anything about the high schoolers (age, gender, names)? What was the plot? Was there a villain? Was this a young-adult fantasy or something more mature? Was the "Ever" part of the name at the end or the beginning?

  • You had the book marked as "science fiction" in your original question title. Was there anything sci-fi about the book?

Possibly the Everworld series by K. A. Applegate. It's YA and it's about teenagers and it's fantasy and it has Ever in the title, which meets most of the admittedly limited criteria!

David's life was pretty normal. School. Friends. Girlfriend. Actually, Senna was probably the oddest aspect of his life. She was beautiful. Smart. But there was something very different about her. Something strange.

And on the day it began, everything happened so quickly. One moment, Senna was with him. The next, she was swallowed up by the earth, her screams echoing from far, far away. David couldn't just let her go. Neither could the others. His friends and hers. So, they followed. And found themselves in a world they could have never imagined.

Now they have to find Senna and get home without losing their lives. Or their minds. Or both...

Published in 1999 so the date range is also close.


Could this be "Midrealm" by Garrett Robinson? It's much too late (2013) but the plot sounds astoundingly similar...

What if you and your friends went to another world every time you went to sleep?

What if you spent half your life here, in our world, and the other half battling for mankind’s survival against foes too terrible to be real?

And what if you could never tell anyone?

This is reality for the Realm Keepers: six people from Earth thrust into a terrifying war between Midrealm and Chaos. Plucked from their ordinary lives and given extraordinary powers, they’re the only thing standing between our world and destruction.


Midrealm is a story about six teenagers who are in detention one day and pass out. They wake up in another world, where they are the Realm Keepers, wizards with incredible powers. Each Realm Keeper has a different element to control. The world is threatened by an evil wizard called Terrence that they need to battle, to save both Midrealm (the fantasy world) and Earth.

  • Why do you think this is the book? Do you have any details (plot summary, reviews, etc) that you could add to your answer? Commented Aug 19, 2015 at 2:11

    The original poster has already confirmed that Everworld is the answer.
