This month I chose to continue with the Wayward Children series with Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I loved the first one and I can't wait to see more from these characters and worlds!


Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

This is the story of what happened first…

Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.

Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you've got.

They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.

They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

Can’t wait to hear what you think about this one. I really liked it. It was nothing like I expected. I’m totally obsessed with this series now. The next one is even better.

I just finished this one. I liked book 2 more than the first one. I loved getting to see how they discovered their world and what they went through before arriving at the wayward school. This book made me love Jack even more!
