Every Heart a Doorway


This is the first novella of the Wayward Children series. It's about a home for children who have returned from Faerie to unbelieving parents and heavy despair. It's not the typical magic school trope. Rather, it's a fresher take on it. Still I wasn't able to quite get into it. Being a novella and only about 170 pages, I think its quick dive into the plot left me unable to really sink my teeth in the characters and immerse myself in the eventual murder mystery plot. I found myself not really caring that much about anyone. Nonetheless, this book won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novella a few years back, among others.
