Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

Beneath the Sugar Sky Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beneath the Sugar Sky, the third book in @seananmcguire’s Wayward Children series from @tordotcompub, finds us back at Eleanor West’s School for Wayward Children and dealing directly with ramifications of events from the first book, when Sumi’s daughter Rini comes looking for her mother, who has been inconveniently murdered before Rini was even conceived. Despite Eleanor’s rules of “No Solicitations. No Visitors. No Quests.”, Sumi’s friends embark to help find her soul and set things right in the land of Confection, before reality catches up to Rini and realizes she shouldn’t exist anymore. Being able to see a portal world through the eyes of the contemporary students was a treat, but the real beauty of this book is the students coming together and creating their own true, found family. Having a found family of my own whom I love more than I can say, I can relate to these kids and the love they feel for each other, despite their occasional differences. McGuire continues to tackle subjects that I wish I’d been able to read about when I was younger and this is one of the many reasons I push this series whenever anyone asks me for a book recommendation.
