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.
Oh my gosh I have never immediately fallen in love with a book series like I did with the Wayward Children series. I’m currently reading the third book “Beneath the Sugar Sky” and just love, love, love it! I thought it would be like Miss Peregrine, but it’s not. It’s better.
New favourite author!
Seanan McGuire, author of the Toby Daye series (Rosemary and Rue, A Local Habitation, An Artificial Night, Late Eclipses), as well as other works. She is also Mira Grant (www.miragrant.com), author of Feed and Deadline.
Born and raised in Northern California, she fears weather and is remarkably laid-back about rattlesnakes. Seanan watches too many horror movies, reads too many comic books, and shares her house with two monsters in feline form, Lilly and Alice (Siamese and Maine Coon).
