Finished it!

Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire

Not every child who falls down a rabbit hole finds Wonderland...

 

Some find something way weirder or scarier, while others find rainbows and unicorns. But whatever place they discover, it is a wrench when they return to our world and all they want to do is find their way back to what they now call 'home'.

 

 

Damn, but I wish this had been a full-length novel rather than a novella. I loved it, and wanted to know more about the characters and the worlds they visited.
