Another fantasy audiobook from Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series, which began with the Alex, Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award-winning, World Fantasy Award finalist, Every Heart a Doorway. Beneath the Sugar Sky, the third audiobook in McGuire's Wayward Children series, returns listeners to Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children in a contemporary fantasy for fans of all ages. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the "real" world. When Rini lands with a literal splash in the pond behind Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, the last thing she expects to find is that her mother, Sumi, died years before Rini was even conceived. But Rini can’t let Reality get in the way of her quest – not when she has an entire world to save! (Much more common than one would suppose.) If she can't find a way to restore her mother, Rini will have more than a world to save: she will never have been born in the first place. And in a world without magic, she doesn’t have long before Reality notices her existence and washes her away. Good thing the student body is well-acquainted with quests... A tale of friendship, baking, and derring-do. Warning: May contain nuts.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This gothic charmer is a love letter to anyone who's ever felt out of place. Publishers Weekly
Seanan McGuire once again demonstrates her intimate knowledge of the human heart in a powerful fable of loss, yearning and damaged children. Paul Cornell, author of London Falling and Witches of Lychford
This gothic novel is ideal for fantasy fans who have longed for a world of their own, as well as readers looking for books with diverse casts. Bookish
Girl Interrupted meets Grimm's Fairy Tales. Let it in and it will touch your heart and open your mind. Geek Syndicate
McGuire's lyrical prose makes this novella a rich experience. Library Journal starred review
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
2019 YALSA Amazing Audiobook
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire is one of the most extraordinary stories I've ever read. V. E. Schwab, New York Times bestselling author of A Gathering of Shadows
“A lush, darkly whimsical adventure full of wonders such as a pink soda sea, candy corn fields, and a castle made of gingerbread, all made grim by the characters’ desperation to get Rini’s mother back before it’s too late. Readers will be thrilled to see old friends and meet new ones in this scrumptious tale that emphasizes acceptance, kindness, and the enduring value of friendship.” Publishers Weekly
“Michelle Dockrey’s smooth narration invites listeners to jump into this third installment of the Wayward Children series…Dockrey ably portrays the confusion and wonder of new student Cora, whose perspective anchors the story, while also deepening the characterizations of Cora’s companions—most notably Rini, who is all high-pitched, petulant insistence. Series fans will savor this tantalizing taste of another world.” AudioFile
