Beneath the Sugar Sky
By Seanan McGuire
Hardcover, 174 pages
When a girl wearing a dress made of cake falls from the sky and lands in the turtle pond at Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children, some of the students find themselves on a quest to help the new girl save herself and find her mother. But the group will have to travel to the underworld because the girl’s mother died before she was even conceived.
The third novella in the Wayward Children series, this book continues where Every Heart a Doorway left off, but also touches on the world one of the students, Sumi, came from. As usual, this book didn’t disappoint.
