And, yes, most people weren't prepared for Nory to transform into a squippy (that's half squid, half puppy) -- but it's not like Nory meant to mix up paws and tentacles. And while Bax does have the unfortunate magical condition of turning into a stone, he swears he has nothing to do with the rocky magic that's been happening in Dunwiddle's halls. When things get messy, it's easy to point your finger at the kids with the messiest magic. But the Upside-Down Magic students aren't going to let themselves get in trouble. Instead, they're going to find out what's really going on -- and get their school back on track before something really wacky happens.

"There's something mesmerizing about Hiebert's storytelling voice." --The New York Times Book Review A case from the past sparks a nightmare for Detective Leah Teal in Michael Hiebert’s masterful new novel of suspense. Fifteen years ago, a serial killer tagged by the media as the Stickman spread terror throughout Alabama and became Alvin detective Joe Fowler’s obsession. After fifteen months and nine victims, Harry Stork was identified as the Stickman and Fowler shot him dead. The killings stopped. For a while. Now, more bodies are turning up, each staked through the chest with a stick-figure drawing in the killer’s signature style. Detective Leah Teal—Joe Fowler’s daughter and Alvin’s sole detective—receives a letter before each victim is found, just like her late father did. The only people who knew about the letters were the cops on the taskforce back then—and the killer himself. Did Joe shoot the wrong man, or was one of the detectives he handpicked involved all along? As a single mother, Leah tries to balance an increasingly disturbing case and a new relationship with caring for her children—bright, perceptive Abe, and teenaged Caroline, who’s in the first flush of young love. But with each menacing communication, each gruesome discovery, Leah realizes just how personal, and how devastating, the truth may be. Weaving lyrical prose and emotional richness into a taut, gripping mystery, Michael Hiebert creates a fascinating novel of life, love, and death in a small Southern town. Praise for the novels of Michael Hiebert Dream with Little Angels "Hiebert's first novel courts comparison to the classic To Kill a Mockingbird, but the book manages to soar as a moving achievement in its own right. In Hiebert's hands, psychological insight and restrained lyricism combine to create a coming-of-age tale as devastating as it is indelible. --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "Readers who enjoy literary fiction depicting small-town life in the tradition of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird may want to try Hiebert's debut." --Library Journal "Michael Hiebert's debut delivers . . . a breathless, will-they-get-there-in-time affair, with a heartbreaking resolution." --Mystery Scene Close to the Broken Hearted "Hiebert does a masterful job of building suspense." --Publishers Weekly "A very good, sometimes emotional, mystery that will stay with you long after it's over." --Suspense Magazine A Thorn Among the Lilies "Engaging. . .Readers will keep guessing whodunit to the end." --Publishers Weekly

It wasn’t true what was said about me—not even close. But people believed it and passed it on. My life was awful. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. I took showers so I could cry without disturbing my family. Finally, my attackers ran out of rocks—or they moved on to somebody else. Either way, things got better. A friend told me that if I lived my life according to God’s Will, most people would eventually see that the gossip was false. He was right. Today my life is better than ever. My faith in God and others is strong. I’ve forgiven those who lied about me—and those who listened. At least I hope I have. I’ve also learned to be a lot more careful about what I say about others and about what I allow others to say to me. As this book points out, people are fragile. Reading “Sticks and Stones” has helped me. If you have a story similar to mine, I hope and pray it will help you. ~ Anonymous
