I really loved starting from the beginning with someone going through their door the first time. I really loved this new doorway world. I loved our main character Regan. I loved that McGuire is tackling issues that so many young people experience alone.

What I did not like was this book being marketed as YA, when really it read like a middle school book. *sigh* Can't have everything, I guess. ( )

Regan lives in fear of being different, and is willing to do whatever it takes to fit into her best friend Laurel's rigid version of girlhood - but when Regan doesn't start puberty when her friends do, her parents reveal that she is intersex. Regan, unwisely, trusts Laurel with her secret, and ends up running away from school in tears - and never making it home, as she discovers a door in the woods, with the (familiar-to-readers) words "Be Sure" over it. Regan steps through and finds herself in the Hooflands, where all creatures have hooves and humans are exceedingly rare - and expected to be heroes. Regan falls in with a family of unicorn-herding centaurs, with whom she lives for the next six years - five of them in hiding from the Queen. But at last destiny comes calling, and Regan rides off to be a hero.

Read this in one great, satisfying gulp. As usual with most of the Wayward Children series, there's little in the way of denouement.

Quotes

It was like [adults had] drawn a veil of fellow-feeling and good intentions over their own childhoods as soon as they crossed the magic line into adulthood, and left all the strange feuds, unexpected betrayals, and arbitrary shunnings behind them. (10)

"When a human shows up in the Hooflands, it means something bad's about to happen." (Pansy the centaur to Regan, 58)

It was an amazing change from home, where she was sometimes catered to but never really listened to about important decisions. (75)

Humans were heroes and lightning rods for disaster, and none of the stories she'd heard about them...had ended gently for them, or for the people around them. (Daisy, 79)

"You understand this was for your own good."
"I understand you think this was for my own good." (the faun and Regan, 105)

...who didn't think she was weird or try to shove her into boxes she'd had nothing to do with building. This was her home. (129)

It takes so long to reach the inevitable (chapter title, 154) ( )

Another interesting and adventurous new world to enter in this newest addition to the Wayward Children series. While the name sounds familiar, I honestly can't remember if Reagan has been in previous books or if she is a whole new character to the series. I see that there are already plans for another book in this series and I'm hoping that things end happily for the characters in this series. ( )

A none-too-bright young girl walks through a mysterious door leading to Hooflands, a magical world full of all manner of mythological hoofed creatures. The pace is slow, the characters generally dull, and the world-building weak*. I wish McGuire's editor had told her to stop phoning it in.

*Although some may find it interesting to know that female centaurs have to pay stud fees. ( )

I loved the set up and the world building of this story, though I didn't care as much for the resolution. It broke my heart, as always, when Reagan returns to the "real" world. ( )
