Summary from Goodreads:

Welcome to the Whitethorn Institute. The first step is always admitting you need help, and you've already taken that step by requesting a transfer into our company.

There is another school for children who fall through doors and fall back out again.
It isn't as friendly as Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children.
And it isn't as safe.

When Eleanor West decided to open her school, her sanctuary, her Home for Wayward Children, she knew from the beginning that there would be children she couldn't save; when Cora decides she needs a different direction, a different fate, a different prophecy, Miss West reluctantly agrees to transfer her to the other school, where things are run very differently by Whitethorn, the Headmaster.

She will soon discover that not all doors are welcoming...

I've followed this series from the beginning and each book is better than the last. I love how they all have a different story, with different characters, but fit together like a puzzle piece.

Cora is a strong character from the beginning. She only wants what's best for herself, but doesn't know how to go about doing it. She places herself in a school for wayward children, a place that could help her forget the door she had gone through and the things that happened on the other side, but things aren't always as they seem.

Strange happenings are going on in the school. So strange, Cora is convinced going back into the door is a better option. If only she can convince the other students to help her escape. 

I loved this book. Another wonderful read by McGuire. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
