Being Around

Being Around

I can build success from disaster. Creating it from frustration, not so much.

It’s a mystery how anybody manages at Messing Academy. Confusing hallways and cryptic instructors are the least of my worries.

Ms. Catellus, the summoning teacher, is the most unhelpful of all.

I’m on my own with my talent.

Mateo and I are on probation after our fight on the first day. The Dean will revoke our Rec privileges if it happens again. I can’t make waves just by being around, right?


I might be a summoner, but I’m the one being summoned.

The Sidhe Queen commands my presence, and I have no idea why. When Mateo finds out, he’ll try to one-up me again. He might do anything with that unseelie cat for a pledge.

Including taking his grudge off campus.
