In a world of elite magic academies, weird and wonderful things happen when you’re sent off to public school . . . and put in the Upside-Down Magic class.
It’s never easy when your magic goes wonky.

Nory, Elliott, Andres, and Bax are just four of the students in Dunwiddle Magic School’s Upside-Down Magic class. In their classroom, lessons are unconventional, students are unpredictable, and magic has a tendency to turn wonky at the worst possible moments. Because it’s always amazing, the trouble a little wonky magic can cause . . .
From New York Times bestselling authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle (Life of Ty), and Emily Jenkins (Toys Go Out) comes an offbeat series about a group of misfits who set out to prove that life on the other side of ordinary has its charms.
