Publisher's Summary

In Where the Drowned Girls Go, the next addition to Seanan McGuire's beloved Wayward Children series, students at an anti-magical school rebel against the oppressive faculty.

"Welcome to the Whitethorn Institute. The first step is always admitting you need help, and you’ve already taken that step by requesting a transfer into our company."

There is another school for children who fall through doors and fall back out again. 

It isn't as friendly as Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children. 

And it isn't as safe. 

When Eleanor West decided to open her school, her sanctuary, her "Home for Wayward Children", she knew from the beginning that there would be children she couldn’t save; when Cora decides she needs a different direction, a different fate, a different prophecy, Miss West reluctantly agrees to transfer her to the other school, where things are run very differently by Whitethorn, the Headmaster. 

She will soon discover that not all doors are welcoming....

Great, as usual

I've been enjoying this series from the beginning and this is another good entry into it. It started off scary but ended hopeful. I don't think that's a spoiler. They end that way, one way another.

Left feeling... empty.

Normally I don't mind that these books are so short because they are so vivid and Seanan is so maddeningly brilliant that it doesn't matter. Yet, for the first time I feel as if she tried to pack too much of her brilliance in too small a package. More package, less duct tape please!

Exhilarating! Really Brings the Series Together

This series has always felt approachable from any angle. When I recommend it, I stress that the reading order isn’t set in stone. That being said, when I read ‘Across the Green Grass Fields’ I felt disconnected; it didn’t tie into the other Wayward Children stories as previous books had. Now, I’m so glad for that book! This volume wouldn’t have been possible without that foundation. This one truly brings all the previous works together! Seanan McGuire is a genius and I can’t wait to read whatever comes next.

Searingly glorious

Heart breaking in places, but we finally see what the 'other' schools like as well as the impact fat phobia has on Cora.

A brave addition to the wayward children universe.
