We’re back from our summer hiatus! I also totally missed the one-year anniversary of NBBC in May 2016, so happy birthday, lovely book-clubbers and commenters.At the recommendation of a couple of our members, we’ll be reading Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire, a YA fantasy novel featuring asexual and trans characters.
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.
Nancy Brinkley gives a short, spoiler-free review of book from an ace perspective on Book Riot.
