Poor Cora. :(

I read a bit more. I'm having some very bad feelings about the other school. :shock:

I am about to start chapter six and feel the same.

Cora made a poor choice when she decided to switch schools.

Me too!

I finished the book and loved it! I think it is among the best installments of the series. I can hardly wait for the next one!

I liked the dark version of the Wayward Home and the themes it touched (fatphobia, identity, bullying).

Where are you in the book?

I'm actually also finished (just), and am so unbelievably happy with this one. The ending just made me so happy. I love the undoing of the age limit. I love that they rescued the others (especially Marian), and I hope we get to see more of Rowena (there's something kind of funny there).


I love that Regan was featured again. And I love Sumi.

I wouldn't have thought one of Cora's books would wind up being among my favorites, but here we are.


I also agree about the themes. I love how smoothly they're are wound into the series.

I'm very curious about the next one (the title is Lost in the Moment and Found) and can't wait to find out who it's about!
