    Summary

    Eleanor let them all go with a smile on her face without a grudge in her heart, and Kade tried to imagine having her patience. Maybe it would come as he aged. Maybe he was too much of a boy. Maybe patience was harder to come by when people kept shutting the door in your face instead of behind your back.

    Summary

    It took Ronan eight years to realize that he could never tell the truth. He could never trust anyone. From then on, he destroyed everything he pulled out of his dreams. So many beautiful things lost because he was unable to share his gift with the world. It began to eat away at him. Although the 'stealing' stopped, Ronan continued to see professionals. He mostly spent his time there silent.

     

     

    It took seventeen years for Ronan's parents to believe some time away would help. He was handed a brochure for a Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children. His stomach dropped. His mother prattled on about how the school specialized in helping those like him.

     

    Ronan didn't protest. He knew it would be worthless. It only took a week for Ronan to pack his bags and be driven miles away from home. The one place he had felt he could be himself, if still only in secret.

    Summary

    “I went to a magical, beautiful undersea Kingdom of Mermaids and Selkies, filled with silk and pearls and schools of fish, with houses of anemones and palaces built on the sea floor, with the sky so high above us it would take a month’s journey to reach it, our surroundings lit by glowing fish employed by the Merqueen. Tasia went to an evil world where a despotism tried to destroy all ideas of order among the lowly and used the poor only as entertainment, while a forest outside the Government’s reach was filled with evil trees that suffocated anyone who came near and ponds filled with murky whirlpools and fish that could eat you whole, and even beyond that mountains that entrapped you in them, waiting to feast on your rotting flesh until you killed yourself of hopelessness and self-hate.” She took a dramatic deep breath, then looked again at the twins. “So, where did you go?”

    “Oregon.”

    Summary

    A year after Jill's murderous rampage and Nancy's disappearance everything seems calm at the school, but both events have left a profound impression on the student body, desperately longing for home, and on Eleanor herself, shaken by her perceived failure to protect her students. Two new students arrive in this unsettled time: Forest, who has almost forgotten what it feels like to be human and isn't sure she wants to remember, and Sachi, who was only away for three weeks in Earth time but learned enough for several lifetimes. Meanwhile Kade is struggling to adjust to the extra responsibility and Christopher is shocked to discover that someone may be able to rival the Skeleton Girl in his affections.

    The reappearance of a face from the past brings these tensions to boiling point, now that the knowledge of how to make a Skeleton Key is out.
