Casa lui Eleanor West pentru copii greu de ținut în frâu
Copiii au dispărut întotdeauna alunecând printr-o umbră de sub pat sau în șifonier și au reapărut în altă parte.
Dar tărâmurile magice nu au nevoie de acești copii miraculoși. Nancy a experimentat așa ceva la un moment dat așa ceva, dar acum s-a întors. Lucrurile pe care le-a văzut...pot schimba o persoană.
Copii din grija domnișoarei West înțeleg foarte bine aceste aspecte. Și fiecare dintre ei caută un drum înapoi spre propria lume fantastică.
Dar sosirea lui Nancy marchează o schimbare în Casă. Există o întunecime la fiecare colț, iar când tragedia lovește este datoria lui Nancy să descopere alături de colegii ei sursa răului.
Indiferent de costuri.

This book surprised me in every way and the story was so atmospheric, I only wished it could have been more magic to it. The story is unique and I cannot wait to read the next ones in the series to find out more about the hidden fantasy worlds.

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 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 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
"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
