When is a door not a door? When it's a gateway to adventure: when it's the portal that leads you from a world where you never quite fit in to the place where you've always belonged, where you've always wanted to be. When it is the conduit to everything you need to be happy.

When is a door a lie? When it opens again and you find yourself right back where you started...only now suddenly, brutally aware of how much you're missing.

There's a school where these wayward children go, when they find themselves back in homes that will never understand them.

Welcome to Eleanor West's.

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.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back, and enrolled at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children. Darkness lurks around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new schoolmates to get to the heart of things...no matter what it costs.

"With Every Heart a Doorway, McGuire has created her own mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy - a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics, even as it carves its own precocious space between them." - NPR
