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.
The girls were never present for the entrance interviews.
"I went to a country of happy, dancing skeletons who said that one day I'd come back to them and marry their Skeleton Girl," said Christopher. "So pretty sunshiny, but sort of sunshine by way of Día de los Muertos."

Q: How many different weekly memes do you participate in besides the Book Blogger Hop?
A: Four. I occasionally do Music Monday, when I have new music to share. And more often participate in Top Ten Tuesday, when I remember. Friday 56 and Book Beginning. Also when I remember. This past year in particular has made me a bit scatterbrained and I don't always remember to. I also don't always have a new book to share for Friday 56 and Book Beginnings, my reading has slowed down a lot this past year as well.
