S.T. (that’s short for Shit Turd) is a domesticated crow and he finds himself out on a crazy adventure in the wide world when his best friend, and owner, Big Jim, comes down sick and needs some help. S.T. considers himself a human and feels disconnected from the animal kingdom at large, so his only partner on this adventure is Big Jim’s big, dumb dog, Dennis. The two set out to find a cure and S.T. learns he can rely on Dennis and his own wild instincts. But can they fix what’s wrong with Big Jim and the other humans?

Riley would never kill herself and Mila is determined to figure out what happened, even if everyone she knows thinks she’s crazy. After a spell gone wrong, Mila raises not only Riley, but two other recently deceased students, June and Dayton. Unfortunately for Mila and Riley, they find themselves linked to their two long-time bullies. None of the zombie girls recall their murders and Mila must hide them from the rest of the town while working more unfamiliar magic to find out what really happened.
