Karina's Silver Shoes by Denise Marques Leitão

Fourteen-year-old Karina loves math but hates questions without clear answers. Amidst her confusion about her own identity, she comes across fascinating silver shoes. When the shoes cause her best friend to suffer an accident, Karina starts suspecting there is something wrong with them. And indeed they attract otherworldly visitors. More than that, the shoes become her ticket for a trip to an alternate world.
A feminist parody of fantasy tropes, Karina’s Silver Shoes is The Wizard of Oz meets the Hobbit in female version.
