Every Heart a Doorway was a little confusing at the start, but once I got into the story, I was pleasantly surprised. Nancy ends up at a very unique boarding school after returning from a world that isn’t the one we know. All of the children at Eleanor West’s School for Wayward Children have stumbling into other worlds – some ruled by logic, some fueled by nonsense. It’s rather like Alice in Wonderland only imagine there are hundreds of Wonderlands, each unique as the child who visited it.
Nancy makes a handful of friends, but most of the students are weary of her since bad things begin happening to some of the students at the school soon after Nancy arrives. Nancy and her friends are determined to solve the mystery and catch the murderer.
This book combines fantasy, a genre I don’t read very often, with mystery/suspense, something I’ve been reading more of lately. I picked this book up because I read that the main character is asexual, which intrigued me. It’s a very short book (only 173 pages), but it still had a decent plot. I loved the characters, and I’m excited for the next book in the series, which comes out in June.
