My first foray back into the Sci-fi/Fantasy world, and I absolutely loved it! HITCS is about a man named Linus Baker working at the Department in Charge of Magical Youth who oversees the upkeep of orphanages and care for magical children that inhabit them. When Linus is given a top secret assignment to check in on an extremely far away and isolated orphanage, his time on the island changes him as he learns love and acceptance from the unique children, and mostly from the mysterious master of the orphanage Arthur Parnasiss. ~ Reviewed by Samantha Beitler
