    But children ah children Children follow the foxes and open the wardrobes and peek beneath the bridge Children climb the walls and fall down the wells and run the razor’s edge of possibility until sometimes just sometimes the possible surrenders and shows them the way to go home It's not often I give books in a series three five stars in a row but these stories just speak to an inner part of me the curious fe

    385 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“There is kindness in the world if we know how to look for it If we never start denying it the door” This is definitely my least favorite from the series apart from the first one of course Something about changing perspectives in a single page bugs me I can't feel close and personal to a character when it changes POV all the time In 200 page books like this one it doesn't

When Rini lands with a literal splash in the pond behind Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children the last thing she expects to find is that her mother Sumi died years before Rini was even conceived But Rini can’t let Reality get. They can be hard for their families to understand those returned used up miracle children They sound like liars to people who never had a doorway of their own They sound like dreamers They sound unwell to the charitable and simply sick to the cruel The Wayward Children series continues to be strong but I felt this book doesn t reach the same level as the previous twoWe are back at Eleanor West s Home for Wayward Children where children who have spent time in portal worlds are trying to support each other and survive being away from the unreachable places they call home The book has the same charming weirdness as Every Heart a Doorway but it s missing the sense of loss and sacrificeEverything is way too easy In Every Heart a Doorway and Down among the Sticks and Bones children go to insane lengths to open their portal and here they are hopping between worlds with minimal effort All the characters struggles are cheapened Travel between worlds is cheapened Even death is cheapenedMany reviewers are praising the book for its amazing representation and diversity and for a good reason However I think it s not perfect and the problems are worth highlighting I m not going to talk about what the author does right it s a lot and it s been mention by many reviewers I ll just talk about the points that could have been handled betterNadya and disabilityWe have a child born without an arm who has no problem with this and rejects useless prosthetics which are cosmetic than functional Great But then she goes to her portal world and gets a magic arm This sets her apart from all other children we see none of them have their source of difference fixed in the portal world Cora doesn t magically become thin That would have been absurd and thankfully the author knows it But then why does Nadya need fixing Disabled kids reading this story won t be magically cured so it would have been nice for them to see they can have fun adventures and a fulfilling life just the way they are Cora and fatphobiaOne of the main characters has experienced severe fat shaming She is also extremely athletic and is living a healthy life So far great But then her athleticism becomes such a huge point that I think it shifts the message in the wrong direction Every single paragraph she appears we hear about what a great swimmer she is and what a great jogger and how flexible she is etc etc I feel at the end the message became You shouldn t fat shame people because they might actually be super athletic and you don t know it instead of staying You shouldn t fat shame people Period Whether they do sports or not is none of your business I was also bothered by Cora spending much time angsting about how fat she thinks she is than she does missing her mermaid world and trying to come in terms with living on dry land The previous two books have established how important the portal worlds are to the kids and how painful it is for them to be away but it didn t feel this way hereIn the end this isn t a 5 or even a 4 star read for me because I feel it isn t adding anything new Every Heart a Doorway has a great idea and Down among the Sticks and Bones reveals the backstory and motivation of some important characters while this book reads like a random adventure set in the same world fun enough but nothing memorable Still it is a solid book and I will definitely keep reading the series Absolute Banking English expects to find is that her mother Sumi died years before Rini was Jewish Life easy In Every Heart a Doorway and Down among the Sticks and Bones children go
