Hotel Dare (graphic novel) by Terry Blass and Claudia Aguirre

Olive Dare and her adopted siblings Darwin and Charlotte agree to spend the summer at Grandma LupĂ©’s weird hotel in Mexico, where everything is a mess and there are no guests. 

Then they discover their grandmother's secret: each of the hotel room doors leads to another universe. One universe houses space pirates, another has long-bearded magicians... and somewhere in all this is Grandma's long-lost husband Justino.

A fun adventure story with diverse blended-family members and lots of action and suspense. I'm hoping this will be a series, because there's plenty of opportunity for more fun with these characters.

Some mild cussing, explosions, discussion of sexual identity, monsters, magic, and a pet rat called Donut. 

Recommended for ages 12 to adult.
