whimsical tales of hope and ambition

Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. Portal fantasies, those stories where kids are transported to another world, forced to save an unfamiliar land, and then dumped back on earth, bother me for lots of reasons. These novellas help resolve that frustration by focusing on what happens after the fantasy, after these kids return to their original world but are forever changed by adventures in another.
