“A Wildly inventive and surprisingly playful sci-fi thriller.”—Washington Post
 
Roommates Jaimie Locke and Kim Calloway are each looking to find a new life at college. It’s Jaimie’s first time Outside—away from her large, complicated family and their magical traditions—and she wants to learn what nonmagical life is like. Kim is anxious to escape the depression that’s been dragging her down since last year so she can make new friends and create the art she loves.
 
But almost as soon as they unpack, Jaimie realizes that Kim’s depression is different from normal sadness.

No one said that college would be easy....
