Goodreads Synopsis: Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children
Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.
But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.
Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced… they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.
But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.
No matter the cost.
My Thoughts: This book was stunning. I loved the writing. The characters were all fantastic. We have an asexual main character and a transgender character as well which is amazing! The mystery that takes place in the story is great and I didn’t figure it out until right before it was revealed. All the different worlds this author created are so interesting and I would love a story from each of them. I will be picking up the companion novel this week and I am really looking forward to that. I highly recommend this and it is totally worthy of all the hype it is getting.
