An utterly unique, fantastical mystery that you can dig into as deeply as you like and find something moving, sparkling and entertaining at every level. It's a story about the young people who return, for various reasons, from the magical lands that claimed them as children, and what happens to them next. Think of Narnia, Oz, or Neverland, but in myriad variations, some dark, some dreamy, all distinct. Ultimately it's a story about accepting one's own identity, handled lovingly while pulling no punches. Recommended to anyone who's ever felt out of place.
Sent away to a home for children who have tumbled into fantastical other worlds and are looking for ways to return, Nancy triggers dark changes among her fellow schoolmates and resolves to expose the truth when a child dies under suspicious magical circumstances.
