THE LAST HOUSE ON THE STREET by Diane Chamberlain

WHERE THE DROWNED GIRLS GO by Seanan McGuire
ISBN 9781250213624 | on sale 1/4/22

“She delivers a plot dense enough for a full-length novel in her signature lyrical prose, exploring the effect of cruel, oppressive systems on children’s psyches, while keeping the series’ fairy tale tone intact. The result will captivate both longtime Wayward Children fans and new readers.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The message of owning one’s truth instead of losing one’s individuality will resonate. Highly recommended.”–Library Journal, starred review
