Marianne has felt sad since her mother died in a plane crash several years ago, and its affecting her schoolwork. She and her friend Jack would like to be Master Wizards, the club reserved for model students, but Marianne cant focus on her work and Jack is always playing pranks. Still, the two are trying hard to mend their ways, and Mariannes mood improves when she and her dad move to a new house and acquire a wolf hybrid puppy, Kipluck. Still, Marianne has worries on her mind, like the fact that her dad might start dating the mother of her annoying old neighbor, Brittney. Then Kipluck runs away. Will Marianne find her dog? Can she ever become a Master Wizard?

As usual, DeClements writes about real kids and is never patronizing. Marianne and Jack are both great characters, and their friendship is one of the best non-romantic, non-sentimental friendships I can think of in a childrens book.
