Summary from Goodreads:

Dinosaurs and portals, and a girl who can find both in the latest book in the Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning series.

Antsy is the latest student to pass through the doors at Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children.

When her fellow students realize that Antsy's talent for finding absolutely anything may extend to doors, she's forced to flee in the company of a small group of friends, looking for a way back to the Shop Where the Lost Things Go to be sure that Vineta and Hudson are keeping their promise.

Along the way, temptations are dangled, decisions are reinforced, and a departure to a world populated by dinosaurs brings untold dangers and one or two other surprises!

A story that reminds us that finding what you want doesn't always mean finding what you need.

I love this series. Short and to the pain, Seanen McGuire can lay out a wonderful story in a short amount of time with just enough excitement to keep you reading. With every book, my understanding of the door system and magical creatures beyond widens. I absolutely love these worlds.

Antsy is back and in this new story, she plays a pivotal roll in helping those drawn to the doors. He character is wonderful and well written. I love reading about her.

I had to give this book 5 out of 5 stars. It only took me a few hours to get through and I did it in one sitting. We meet back up with some of our favorite characters from some wonderful worlds and I absolutely love it.

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