Anne has spent most of her thirteen years dreaming of the day she and her best friend Penelope will finally leave Saint Lupin's Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children. When the big day arrives, a series of very curious happenings lead to Anne being charged with an epic quest. Anne, Penelope, and new questing partner Hiro have only days to travel to strange new locales, solve myriad riddles, and triumph over monstrous foes — or face the horrible consequences.
Packed with action, humor, and endless heart, this debut novel marks the first volume in an irresistible and original fantasy series.
"The stakes are high, and with minimal quest training and only three days and 14 1/2 hours, Anne, Penelope, and their new quest member, Hiro, must outsmart the meddling Wizards’ Council, crack indecipherable riddles, and extricate themselves from odd scenarios. Featuring a colorful and diverse cast of characters (including the academy’s cat headmistress) and sometimes ridiculous yet nail-biting action, this is a highly distinctive, smart take on the fantasy novel. All the tropes are there, but White unabashedly calls attention to them, adding to the hilarity." — Kirkus Reviews
