Read Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2) Online Free - 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.

Some adventures require nothing more than a willing heart and the ability to trip over the cracks in the world.
I love McGuire's dark little fairy tales so so much.
I was captivated by Every Heart a Doorway last year, and couldn't wait to get into more of the author's weirdness with Down Among th...

1.) Every Heart a Doorway ★★★★★
This book is beyond words. No amount of word combinations I could possibly string together could do this book justice. This series is truly a gift from above, and I can't urge you enough to drop any and everythin...

4.5 Stars! This was definitely a satisfying sequel. I think I may have enjoyed book one slightly more, but nonetheless, I adore this series and would highly recommend books one and two!
I believe it is written in third person-omniscient, which I find is not the most common form of narration in YA...

4.5 stars. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature:
Since Down Among the Sticks and Bones is a prequel to Every Heart a Doorway and I was going into it already knowing where the story of Jack and Jill ends in this fantasy portal story, I was actually rather reluctant to pick it up. But Seanan Mc...

(3.5) I'm not 100% sure how to rate this book...
I liked it but not as much as the first one. I'm definitely planning on reading the next one since I want to hear more about the other worlds!

Childhood dreams are fun to return to, aren't they? Until you remember that childhood isn't always an easy walk through the wildflowers. Until you remember that some of those dreams can turn to nightmares quick as a flash.
This was definitely better for me than book one. While I thought book one h...
