“There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the doors.”



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.



The Wayward Children series is my guilty pleasure. It’s short and enjoyable. I enjoyed every new world that the author introduced to the readers. Unlike the other books, we get to visit not just one world but three (or was it four?). And you can really get to distinguish the difference of each world. I really salute the author for her brilliance in creating this series. But like the other book, it leaves me wanting for more. We only get to see a glimpse of each world that the characters visited and I wish the author could delve into the worlds deeper.

This book introduced new characters that we haven’t met before but we also met former characters from the other books. To be honest, I like the plot of this book more than the other two but I am not that invested with the whole story. It might be because I have just met the new characters and they have traveled to different worlds fast enough that the old characters still sticks to me. But I still like it, especially the plot and the ending. Each book in this series just gets better and better.

I highly recommend the whole series to everyone who loves stories like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Narnia. The story is so short you would just fly-through the whole book in one sitting.


That’s all folks!

Till next time!

A reader who becomes a villain, a queen, a princess, a heroine, and a warrior depends on the story that she reads. A dreamer who wishes to dwell in the world that she visited through the pages of her book. A frustrated blogger who wishes to put into words the frustration, boredom, and excitement that she felt throughout her many journeys outside the real world.
