Yet another masterpiece in the Wayward Children Series. McGuire created such a unique world with this book with Centaurs, Unicorns, Kelpies, and other mythical creatures. As for the characters, I loved Regan and the Centaur herd that found her when she went through the door. Regan's friendship with Chicory, one of the Centaurs was so pure and heartwarming. While reading, I found myself being able to relate to Regan just wanting to belong with a group of friends. I also found that I could relate to Heather too, feeling unaccepted because she liked different things than the other girls. Across the Green Grass Fields is very much a unique character-driven story, and I loved it. I can't wait to read Where the Drowned Girls Go.
