In this enchanting novel from the acclaimed author of the Wayward Children series, children who have stumbled through magical doors into other worlds find themselves at the Ellingham Academy, an unusual boarding school that caters specifically to their needs. Each student must confront their experiences and heal from the trauma of their otherworldly adventures.


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...else. But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children. Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back, at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, where the students are taught to use their unique abilities to navigate their own worlds. There she meets other children who have been touched by magic—children who can speak to animals, children who can slip through time, children who can conjure the elements—and she learns that even the wildest magic comes with a price.
