John Connolly. The Land of Lost Things.
Phoebe, an eight-year-old girl, lies comatose following a car accident—a body without a spirit.

But an old house on the hospital grounds, a property connected to a book written by a vanished author, is calling to Ceres. Something wants her to enter, to journey to a land colored by the memories of childhood, and the folklore beloved of her father—a land of witches and dryads, giants and mandrakes; a land where old enemies are watching and waiting…The Land of Lost Things.
