    Effie's world comes to life with a magical GLOW-IN-THE-DARK cover

    'Some people think opening a book is a simple thing. It's not.
    Most people don't realise that you can get truly lost in a book. You can.
    Especially you.'

    AFTER THE WORLDQUAKE, MAGIC IS SEEPING INTO OUR WORLD

    Effie Truelove is a new pupil at the Tusitala School for the Gifted, Troubled and Strange, with its twisted grey spires and an English teacher so frightening she gives the class nightmares.

    When her beloved grandfather is brutally attacked, Effie promises to look after his magical books. But then shady book-collector Leonard Levar gets his hands on them and Effie has to embark on the most dangerous adventure of her life . . .

    Effie must travel to the mysterious Otherworld, unlock the hidden meaning of an old book called Dragon's Green, and brave the terrifying Diberi, a secret organisation with plans that could destroy the entire universe.

    But Effie can't face the Diberi alone. Can her new school-friends Maximilian, Wolf, Lexy and Raven combine their gifts and discover their true powers in time?
