Coming of Age Fiction

Things not to do when you find out you’re a wizard:

#1 Do not destroy your dad’s apartment with magical fire. You WILL NOT get the security deposit back.
#2 Do not form an alliance with the guy who is trying to murder you. This will end badly.
#3 Do not drag the girl you’re desperately in love with into your wizard mess. You risk her watching you fail miserably.
#4 Under no circumstances should you get in the middle of an epic magical battle. Death will happen. Lots of death and bad things.

I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn’t have, burned down my high school’s theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A seer guarded by the undead is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I’m pretty sure the cops are after me for destroying my dad’s penthouse.

Social Classes & Economic Disparity
Today there are two Americas, separate and unequal, one educated and one not. And these two tribes—the resentful “non-college” crowd and their diploma-bearing yet increasingly disillusioned adversaries—seem on the brink of a civil war. The strongest determinant of whether a voter was likely to support Donald Trump in 2016 was whether or not they attended college, and the degree of loathing they reported feeling toward the so-called “knowledge economy” of clustered, educated elites. Somewhere in the winding last half-century of the United States, the quest for a college diploma devolved from being proof of America’s commitment to learning, science, and social mobility into a kind of Hunger Games contest to the death. That quest has infuriated both the millions who got shut out and millions who got into deep debt to stay afloat.
