Book Description

** ["Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes" won "Best First Chapter Book" in the 2012 Children's Literary Classics Awards, together with a gold award in the categories "fantasy pre-teen" and "science-fiction pre-teen." The novel was also an award-winning finalist in the 2012 International Book Awards, in the categories young adult and science-fiction]. **

Who would want to have tea with mushrooms, when it’s a hundred degrees and humid out? As Shelby and Shauna Kitt find out, quite a few people. These are, of course, people from Miriax, a planet in a different dimension where nothing and no one is anything like what the thirteen year-old brother and sister twins expect. On Miriax, lilac tea is served with explosive mushrooms, agitex leaves cure motion sickness, stick insects patrol the jungle, and library books carefully choose their readers, refusing to leave the shelf for anyone else. And, if you’re not careful, the walls spit on you.

Shelby and Shauna's lives change drastically when planet Miriax recruits them to seal a dimensional hole that allows Klodians - nasty aliens - to travel to Earth. In order to succeed in their mission, Shelby and Shauna discover skills they never thought they possessed, make friends they never expected to have, and face enemies they never imagined existed.

Editorial Reviews


"I do not read a large amount of science fiction, but Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes may change that for me.  The characters are realistic and engaging.  The setting is magical--I want to take a trip to Miriax.  The story drew me in and kept me guessing until the last page.  I hope there is more to come for Shelby, Shauna, Jit, Vanessa, Marian and Lendox because I very much want to see them all again." --The Book Addict 

"Not only did I love this book, I couldn't put this book down. P.H.C. Marchesi has created a whole other universe, a place where you can get lost in forever." --The Book Blog Experience

"Marchesi combines magical genius and some science and take us on a ride with these young characters. Young adults and adults will love the story alike."
 -- The Pen & Muse Book Reviews

"I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and fantasy. . .It was very entertaining and I didn't want to put it down until I finished it." 13-year-old Ben Weldon --Reader Views Kids --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

As a child, I lived in many different countries, and experienced diverse cultures. I studied at an International School and had friends from all over the world. These experiences shaped my writing and the fantasy world I created in Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes, my debut fantasy/sci-fi novel. The novel is family-friendly and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages, though it was originally written for a middle-grade (11 and up) audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starships and Aliens Review September 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a brilliantly original idea, created in vivid detail. The two worlds the author has created alongside Earth are enthralling. I was reminded of Arthur C Clarke's "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.", as there are many aspects to the settings and creatures that seem almost more magical than sci fi.

The story powers along right from the start. It has the same kind of pace and structure as the Harry Potter stories, with apparently ordinary kids discovering extraordinary abilities, getting into trouble with the nasty authority-figure at a training camp and winning through in a high-action adventure against an overwhelming evil. I loved all that and would certainly put this book on my shelves alongside J K Rowling's.

The characters are superbly drawn. Though the book is written for teenagers, there are adult characters for older readers to engage with. I particularly liked Marina Gibbs, a lady who takes the appearance of an alien in her stride, and does not take any cack from the army, either. Lendox, the mirian vice-consul, is amusing, and the two kids are likeable. The most intriguing character in the book, though, is the mysterious Dale Falconbridge. The author keeps you guessing right to the end whether he's evil or not.

I gulped this book down in one sitting. I couldn't wait to find out what happened to Marina and what was really going on with Dale Falconbridge. I'll be keeping this book on my kindle to read again, and hope that Shelby and Shauna Kitt will be going on many further adventures. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rollicking Fun Space Ride! April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Shauna and Shelby Kitt are "drafted" to save Earth and another good planet Miriax from the evil Klodians, they have no "earthly" idea what they've gotten themselves into. In this young teen adventure, the author has created an exciting world filled with space aleins, evil Klodians, frightening space ghosts, healers, stitching spiders, giant bats and many other fun and quirky details and situations that you might expect from a story involving multiple dimensions. The characters are well developed--you care for the good guys and really hate the bad the guys--and the plot twists and turns made me feel like i was riding in that space ship at times. No motion sickness for me though. Great book and a fun read. I would recommend Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes for any reader ten on up to..oh say a hundred. In other words any reader with an imagination!

4.0 out of 5 stars EVERYONE Should Read This Book!!! October 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marchesi is a phenomenal storyteller, roping the reader into this wonderful tale of other dimensions and species. Though the story revolves around two thirteen-year-old protagonists, I'd have to say that this is a book for everyone. Parents can read it to their children, MG and YA readers will eat it up, and adults will enjoy the premise, themes, and overall fun this book has to offer.

Not only does this novel have a very interesting storyline, but Marchesi's writing capabilities also shine throughout the entire tale. I am always excited when I start a new novel and, three pages in, note to myself that "this book is really well written." It is few authors that have me singing their praises that early on in the novel, so I must say, this novel is very well done. Although the novel is somewhat long, with the protagonists being whisked from place to place, dimension to dimension, it keeps the reader's attention throughout, which is a feat in and of itself, as many authors lose their reader when so much is happening within the text.

Marchesi has a truly vivid imagination, and her explanations throughout the novel were really interesting. I am in awe of the sheer amount of imagination Marchesi brings to her story, tweaking it just so, making the reader experience it and not just read about it. I highly recommend this novel to all readers, and am hoping for a sequel!! Four stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelby and Shauna captured our hearts! August 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A few friends and I started an indie ebook book club and this was one of the first one's we read together. We chose this book because we noticed the author had a PhD in English. We figured it had to at least be well-written. And it was!

I loved the special powers that Shelby and shauna have. I found myself wishing I could manipulate gravity to make myself lighter. ;) It seems reviewer Ben Weldon up there did a good job of summing up the basic plot points, so I'll just say that we all really loved this book. We can't wait for the sequel. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! January 22, 2013
By Karyn B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was super fun. I really enjoyed the characters, the world-building, and the story. I would love to see Shelby and Shauna in another book down the road. I especially enjoyed the complex characters (for a YA/Independent Reader level book) I would recommend this to kids 8-13, or an older reader who wants something fairly light but fast paced and enjoyable.

This book is really awesome. It describes Mirax (another planet) in a way that you can actually see it in your head. I wish this book was part of a series because I want to read more books like this book.
