What happens to the children who return from their portal fantasies? Those with hope to return to the worlds they lost end up at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children - but when the chosen children start dying, it's up to Nancy (newly returned from the Halls of the Dead) and her newfound friends to solve the murders or risk losing the only place in this world that understands them. Seanan McGuire's writing, utterly captivating in her short stories, shines here in this beautiful bite-sized book. Not only is her world enchanting and her inclusive cast of characters fascinating, but Nancy struck a chord with me personally: the first asexual character I've read that truly reflected me, whose representation shaped the story and her interactions with other characters without ever being the story. McGuire's book will captivate those who don't identify with Nancy - the writing is that good - but for me, being able to welcome Nancy into my life and onto my shelves is enough to make this book a favorite.

Short and sweet in a bloodthirsty way. The premise is awesome. Children who have gone through a doorway into another world and returned will never again fit in to the here and now. They need a place where they are believed by people who understand. Enter Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children. Some children, it seems, are willing to do anything to get back to there magical world.
