Series: Wayward Children #1
I probably should have know better than to try another book by Seanan McGuire, but this was available at my library so I figured I'd give it a shot.
This wasn't the book for me. It started out with an interesting concept (kids travel to weird worlds and then back to the boring old real world), but the whole thing just fell flat for me. Part of it may have been the delivery of the audiobook, which may represent Nancy's style well but did not make for riveting listening. Overall I just found the concerns to be just too YA for me (high school aged kids acting like high school aged kids) and the dénouement to be a little too telegraphed. Oh and all the talk about high logic vs nonsense directions was tedious.
Lots of people loved it; it just wasn't for me. Maybe I should have abandoned it.
