Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children
No Solicitations

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.

PRAISE FOR "EVERY HEART A DOORWAY"

"Seanan McGuire has long been one of the smartest writers around, and with this novella we can easily see that her heart is as big as her brain. We know this story isn't true, but it is truth." Charlaine Harris, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series (TV's "True Blood")

""Every Heart a Doorway" by Seanan McGuire is one of the most extraordinary stories I've ever read." V. E. Schwab, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Gathering of Shadows"

"Seanan McGuire once again demonstrates her intimate knowledge of the human heart in a powerful fable of loss, yearning and damaged children." Paul Cornell, author of "London Falling "and "Witches of Lychford"

"So mindblowingly good, it hurts." iO9

"With "Every Heart a Doorway," McGuire has created her own mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics, even as it carves its own precocious space between them." NPR"

A boarding school offering sanctuary for very special teens is threatened by a series of murders in McGuires darkly hypnotic standalone fantasy. Eleanor West has spent her life helping kids who discover secret doors to beguiling worlds and long to return to them. When Nancy arrives at Eleanors manor, unrest seems close behind. If only Nancy could return to the Halls of the Dead and the waiting arms of that dimensions lord, she could be happy, but first shell have to help the others track down a killer whos taking something different from each victim. The students include twins called Jack and Jill; a boy who can speak to bones; and Sumi, Nancys roommate, who comes from a world of nonsense and speaks in lilting, looping curlicues of words. McGuire (the October Daye series) puts her own inimitable spin on portal fantasy, adding horror elements to the mix, and her characters are strange and charming. Being different is all these kids have ever known, but as much as they pine for their other worlds, they ultimately find comfort in one another. This gothic charmer is a love letter to anyone whos ever felt out of place. Agent: Diana Fox, Fox Literary. (Apr.)
