FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Its been barely a day since Edwy left Fredtown to be with his parents and, already, he is being sent away. Hes smuggled off to boarding school in Refuge City, where he will be with his brother and sister, who dont even like him very much. The boarding school is nothing like the school that he knew, theres no one around looking up to him now, and hes still not allowed to ask questions!
Alone and confused, Edwy seeks out other children brought back from Fredtown and soon discovers that Rosi and the others—still stuck in the Cursed Town—might be in danger. Can Edwy find his way back to his friends before its too late?
