Sideways Stories from Wayside School meets Welcome to Nightvale in this wacky new series!
After four schools in four years, all Harvey Hill wants is to be normal. Maybe this time things can be different. Maybe this time things will be better. Except his latest school. Strangeville Middle School, is anything but normal. Something sinister is swimming in the drinking fountain, the cafeteria could swallow you whole, and a giant rat named Cuddles is on the loose. And don’t get the vice principal started on the third-floor supply closet. In fact, don’t even think about it. What supply closet?
At least Harvey has his guide and sort-of new friend Stella Cho to show him the ropes. School newspaper reporter, first chair flugelhorn, and hiding a secret of her own, Stella shows Harvey that maybe “normal” is overrated. But when Stella goes missing while trying to solve the secret of the supply closet (oh, you meant that supply closet!), Harvey must embrace what makes him unique to save his new friend and his new school.
