We follow her as she attempts to master her newfound powers, put an end to a heinous killing spree that has been ravaging her hometown, solve a mystery her parents got wrapped up in 25 years ago, all while going to school at Nevermore Academy and juggling her teenage drama. Nothing to be worried about, just another Wednesday, don’t act like you didn’t laugh.
