    Hardcover Description:

    Three friends discover magic and mayhem around every corner of their school in this illustrated series from New Yorker cartoonist and NAACP Image Award nominee Liz Montague that’s perfect for fans of Witchlings and The Wizards of Waverly Place.

    After a chaotic semester of Elementary Magic, Rose, Amethyst, and Lav have found themselves with new magical skills up their sleeves which will come in handy when they begin Middle Magic next year. But school is the last thing on their minds over winter break. Tensions are high between the Land Walkers and the Merfolk’s mysterious leader Frost. Worse, Amethyst’s mom has gone missing with an extremely illegal wand, and everyone—their classmates, Principal Ivy, the Committee—thinks she’s somehow involved in the disappearance of Rose’s cousin Heather. But Amethyst is determined to find her mother and set everything right. Her mom just has to be innocent!

    When a secret about Amethyst’s identity is revealed, her whole world comes crashing down. She doesn’t understand how her mom could keep something so important from her. Is her mom actually the villain or is something even darker at work here? She’ll have to trust that Rose and Lav can keep the peace above ground while she ventures underwater
