Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire

A mystery-crime novella with a quirky and original idea.  This story is set in Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children, which provides a place for children who have visited fantasy worlds, who have slipped through portals and doorways into fairylands or magic kingdoms, but have now ended up back in the real world and need to learn to cope with their experiences.  The behind-the-doors world building was beautiful.  I enjoyed this book immensely and hope the author publishes the sequel soon... a much longer sequel.
