Narrated by Whitney Johnson, Where the Drowned Girls Go by Seanan McGuire is the seventh novella in the Wayward Children series. Where do children go when Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children can’t save them? Why they go to Whitethorn Institute. Travel with Cora as she attends Whitehorn.

From its instant oatmeal cover to intriguing synopsis, I downloaded and devoured Apocalypse Summer by Tyler Jolley. Extreme weather forced the world to cryogenically freeze members of earth to ride out the storm. What could go wrong?
My favorite of the Wayward Children to date, In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire sprang to life creating door that held me captive from its rules to the people who called it home. If you haven’t tried this fantasy novella series, I encourage you to do so. Perfect for listeners from 12 to 101.
