Then, in English class, a stapler mysteriously flies off teacher Eve Carrow's desk, hitting a student in the face who has just mouthed off to her. The beloved teacher is in the unenviable position of having her brute of a father as principal, so she hates sending any student to his office. As Principal Ernest Carrow begins to terrorize Eve and others more openly, something or someone unseen decides that it's payback time.
School is getting stranger, and Jinxsy and Jessie are faced with mind-boggling changes in their home lives that complicate everything. When a string of shocking events expose explosive secrets, decades-long mysteries are finally revealed.

After a chapter into the story, I had to go back and reread it because I had no idea what I had just read. I thought it was because I was tired, but it turned out to be the way it was written. There are a lot of characters and they're a bit confusing to keep up with because of how quickly the focus shifts between them.
This book has an interesting concept, but the dialogue was unrealistic and the characters were not believable. Even though there were many times I had to put the book down because of how silly it was, I was interested in what was going to happen next.
I will say this though; the editing is fine. I didn't catch any typos or misuse of grammar.
