Wayward Children, Book 7
Synopsis: Welcome to the Whitethorn Institute. The first step is always admitting you need help, and you’ve already taken that step by requesting a transfer into our company.
There is another school for children who fall through doors and fall back out again.
It isn’t as friendly as Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.
And it isn’t as safe.
When Eleanor West decided to open her school, her sanctuary, her Home for Wayward Children, she knew from the beginning that there would be children she couldn’t save; when Cora decides she needs a different direction, a different fate, a different prophecy, Miss West reluctantly agrees to transfer her to the other school, where things are run very differently by Whitethorn, the Headmaster.
She will soon discover that not all doors are welcoming…
Review: This is a new novel by Seanan McGuire and I was curious about another Wayward Children adventure.
Cora has never fit in at Eleanor West’s school. She needs a change and even though everyone advises her against it, she asks to move to Whitethorne’s facility. However, this change will not be easy and Cora will discover that this place hides many secrets.
I had a good time with this short story. The author introduces us to new characters and it is always a pleasure to discover them.
