Where the Drowned Girls Go by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Returning home to Wayward Children is never quite EASY, but it is always WONDERFUL. And in this case, Cora makes a serious decision that takes her to a hellish place.
Of course, in this case, it's not really an adventure to a difficult hell dimension, but it's close. It's the OTHER school. The one that denies other realities and forces the children to fit into its mold. In other words, it's either a school for recalcitrant children or a psycho ward or it's a boarding school. I think it's meant for us to figure out which it is.
I just call it a training ground for our modern reality.
So yeah, I guess it is an adventure to a difficult hell dimension.
The novella is hard, sweet, terrifying, and eventually quite cool. Those reveals...
The series is as strong as ever and a real treat to read.
