Ivan just wanted the bullying to stop. Now his best friend is dead.
Ivan Stein isn’t sure he can survive seventh grade, let alone middle school. Living in a town known for its poverty and violence, he is regularly bullied along with his best friend, Ollie. But fortunes can change.
One day, Ivan finds an old notebook in an abandoned locker at school. Despite a stark warning, he takes the book and unleashes powerful magic he can use to punish his enemies.
But demonic forces control the book’s pages–a terrifying evil that will inflict suffering on the good as well as the bad and take Ivan’s soul as payment.
Life is hard, and people get hurt. But for Ivan, some things are better left alone.
“Out of all the elements I liked about the collection, it is the character display that stood out the most. Ramirez truly is a master at bringing his cast to life, and then binding you to their ordeal. Overall, I think it is a stunning collection many readers will enjoy.” —Horror Palace
