Not every child who needs them finds the doors, but those that do are asked to “Be Sure” of their choice to walk through. And when these chosen children are inevitably thrust back into their own mundane reality, they have to learn to cope with the disappointment. Enter Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children, a haven for those who miss their magical worlds fiercely and hope they will someday return. A perfect book for anyone who has ever wondered how Alice coped after leaving Wonderland or feels like Susan Pevensie deserved better.
