This week my contribution comes from Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire.
Kade made a brief, bitter speech about how Wickedness and Virtue were jut labels and didn’t mean anything; the world he’d been to was labeled “Virtue” on all maps, but it had still cast him out as soon as it realized what he was.
About the Book
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.
