Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children
No Solicitations
No Visitors
No Quests

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 things.

No matter the cost.

I received this book at our wrapped book exchange last January. While I enjoy watching fantasy type movies (Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia etc) I've never gravitated to reading these types of books. This was a good introduction as the book was quite short and fast paced. The down side to that is that I felt that there was not time to properly develop the characters. Overall I enjoyed the book very much and found it to be an interesting premise of what happens to these kids if or when they return to the real world.

Had a delightful meetup at Calgary Zoo. Had books displayed in trunks before the visit to the Zoo. There were THREE BookCrossing babies there! I ended up taking home more books than I was able to pass on!

Ah - this is what happen s to the children who ae different. Other worlds. I found the overlap of the worlds a bit confusing but that could just be my brain issues.
