From New York Times bestselling authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins comes a new, offbeat series about a group of misfits who set out to prove that life on the other side of ordinary has its charms.
It’s never easy when your magic goes wonky.
For Nory, this means that instead of being able to turn into a dragon or a kitten, she turns into both of them at the same time—a dritten.
For Elliott, the simple act of conjuring fire from his fingertips turns into a fully frozen failure.
For Andres, wonky magic means he’s always floating in the air, bouncing off the walls, or sitting on the ceiling.
For Bax, a bad moment of magic will turn him into a . . . actually, he’d rather not talk about that.
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 . . .

A note from Sarah Mlynowski:
In a world where everyone has magical powers, what happens when eight kids can’t get their magic to work properly? Well, they’re put in an upside-down magic class. But is upside down the new right-side up?
I wrote this book with Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins, two brilliant writers who happen to be two of my closest friends. How do three people write a book together? In a nutshell: I outline, Lauren writes the first draft, and Emily edits. But we all do a lot of everything.
The best thing about working with friends is that because we love and respect each other, it’s completely okay to share ridiculous ideas. In fact, it’s encouraged. The best scenes come from ridiculous ideas. Our friendship gives us the freedom to jump as high as we can—and to trust that we are each other’s built in net. Just in case any of the ideas are a little too upside-down.
Happy reading and have a magical day.About the Author:
