The Song From Somewhere Else
First off, let me say that I read this as an eBook so the illustrations were not as good as they probably are in the physical version - they probably add to the experience for sure.
Frank is bullied pretty badly, especially during the summer with her best friends gone. One day as she is putting up posters about her missing cat, Nick, a very large boy who is also teased, helps her out. She ends up going to his house where she hears strange music. In time she learns that the music comes from another world where Nick's mom, a troll-like woman is from. But there are other creatures who would like access to the portal in Nick's basement and unfortunately Frank reveals the secret.
