"So far magic school was total rubbish."

Do you want something different? Something wickedly funny? Something that grinds up YA tropes and serves up delicious rainbow meatloaf?

With minimalist worldbuilding and maximum subversiveness, it is billed as a young adult book, but I think it might be even more enjoyed by old adults.  Like all the best satire, it has an earnest heart, as does Elliot, the oft-obnoxious main character.  And did I say that it is FUNNY?  Because I'm trying to think of adjectives and all I can come up with is hahahahaha!  (shriek) ahahaha!
