Half World by Hiromi Goto
Long, long ago there was a time of Three Realms: the Realm of Flesh, the Realm of Spirit, and Half World between the two. The three realms each had their own purpose and everything was in balance. But somehow the realms became disconnected and life in each has deteriorated with Half World becoming a place of nightmares. Melanie's parents are from Half World but her mother managed to escape with Melanie and raise her in the Realm of Flesh. But when Melanie turns 14 her mother has to return to Half World to fulfill a bargain she made. With the help of a wise neighbor Melanie also ventures into Half World to save her mother and restore balance to the three realms.
