When Norys magic first appeared, her father wanted her to go to fancy, selective Sage Academy, where he is the headmaster. But Norys magic went upside-down at the worst possible moment . . . and she was sent to Dunwiddle Middle School instead! The good news? Nory loves Dunwiddle, and her best friends have upside-down magic, too! The bad news? When a flood wrecks Dunwiddle, Nory and her UDM friends are forced to relocate . . . to Sage Academy! Sure, theres a magical skunk garden, a school-wide Hide and Seek night, and expensive gloves that help Norys friend Elliott with his flaring, but Norys father and the rest of the teachers are super strict, and Nory doesnt feel like she fits in . . . at all. When shes offered the chance to stay at Sage for good, she has to decide where she belongs . . . and if Sage Academy can learn that magic comes in all shapes and sizes.
