Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire
Published on: April 25th, 2016 by Tor.com
Summary (from Goodreads): 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.
Book Beginning: “The girls were never present for the entrance interviews. Only their parents, their guardians, their confused siblings, who wanted so much to help them but didn’t know how.” (pg. 11)
Page 56: “You shouldn’t close doors because you don’t like what’s on the other side.” (pg. 56)
Thoughts: I’ve seen this book series everywhere being raved about and I finally got my hold copy from the library. I’m still currently getting used to the world and the different worlds beyond but I’m sure once I understand I will be hooked.
