Cuz I'm betting that that's what this is. Her teacher would never do her wrong, and her sis and vamp-daddy, though deranged, don't have the skills. It's something to 'overcome'... Werewolf Jack? Any other guesses anybody?Also, something something lightning on the cover (probably gonna reanimate Jill) and it appears to be the Moors, but there is no giant looming red moon? Which is probably a Bad Thing as well.

This is indeed a good, good, good day!!!p.s. Also, please don't let this be the last book in the series. Please let there be infinitely more. Because there are endless other worlds and doorways out there, there should be endless books too!

At the end of EVERY HEART A DOORWAY Jack stabbed her sister Jill, before fleeing through the Door to the place she gratefully called home. Unlike every other student at the school, Jack had not been exiled from her Door because whatever powers govern these things thought she was not CERTAIN enough (Jack is never not certain of her actions). Jack was exiled in a bid of familial love for her monstrous, murderous twin to keep her safe.Three times Jack protected and saved her sister, and three times that LOVE proved fatal for others.Along for this Quest that is not a Quest (just as before with Rini in BENEATH THE SUGAR SKY) are Christopher, Cora, Sumi and Kade.However our intrepid Wayward Children have all, in some way or another, found themselves at crossroads they didn't wish to be at. Christopher who misses Mariposa more and more with every breath he takes, finds Jack's return disquieting for the new array of traits she kept buried before. Kade is afraid of the future, as his Aunt fades a little more each day and the responsibilities of helping other children with misplaced Doors falls on his uncertain shoulders. Cora finds everyone's easy acceptance of the horrors Jack brings to them unfathomable and longs for the Trenches she understands.And Sumi is...Sumi. Practical in her own way and just as much a Monster as Jack, just in a cotton candy package wrapping. We meet Alexis once more and she's as perfectly matched for Jack as she was before her second death in DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES. She's exactly what Jack needs, and shows her own fierceness when Kade asks one too many pointed questions he had no business asking.Gideon is a new child who found his Door before Jack found her way to the Moors and who finds himself the object of Sumi's interest.This is filled with romance and adventure and heart break and happy ends. Everyone finds themselves changed when they go to the Moors and only the Monsters are really able to survive.

    Never fear! Just as I finished my Review of Down Among the Sticks and Bones and complaining last night about that I want another book with Jack and Jill ... Here is another book with Jack and Jill! This one seems to be follow up from Every Heart a Doorway. Yes! That's just what I needed. Now, I only have to wait for another seven months. Oh dear.
