Children have always disappeared under the right circumstances. Whether it be going down a rabbit hole, under a dark bed, into a closet and they wind up going somewhere magical. But what happens when the special kids come back from the magical lands?

They wind up in Eleanor West’s Home For Wayward Children. A sanctuary for children who have come back from magical lands that have trouble adjusting to real life again.

I thought this was fantastic! I went into this book literally knowing nothing about the plot lines at all. Then I was like kind of mind blown when the plot really started heating up. I had no idea it was going to go on the path it did and I loved every minute of this book! Will read more from this author in the future!

Seanan McGuire AKA Mira Grant

Hi! I’m Seanan McGuire, author of the Toby Daye series (Rosemary and RueA Local HabitationAn Artificial NightLate Eclipses), as well as a lot of other things. I’m also Mira Grant (www.miragrant.com), author of Feed and Deadline.

Born and raised in Northern California, I fear weather and am remarkably laid-back about rattlesnakes. I watch too many horror movies, read too many comic books, and share my house with two monsters in feline form, Lilly and Alice (Siamese and Maine Coon).

  1. I have been recommended this book a lot through book tube. I would really like to explore more adult books but I go back to YA (I am still a teenager, but it’s the more complex text that I am after!) This is already on my TBR but you make me eager to pick it up 🙂


    • Thanks so much! I agree with you on our comfort zone genres. I honestly read this just to see if the hype was real LOL 😂 Throughout all this trial and error over the past year or so, I’ve really discovered that Fantasy whether it be YA, Adult, or Middle Grade is my genre. I used to think that I was mainly a Contemporary gal. If you do read this eventually, I think you will love it! With it being so short it helps bridge the gap between YA and Adult Fantasy IMO.

      • You are very welcome! August was a very trial and error month for me: half of the books I read I didn’t enjoy at all! I love high fantasy at the moment. Contemporary is nice to read after coming out of a heavy read like LOTR! I hope I do like it. Your reply is appreciated 😇
