Once in a generation, "the Effluvia" strikes Little Spring Valley, and it affects everyone differently. In this third book in the series, Missy wakes one morning to find the Upside-Down House is … right-side up? It's not long before Missy has to quarantine the house, but meanwhile she's still fielding calls from worried parents, and it seems Louie can't keep his sticky fingers from taking other people's things. But Missy's magic cure might just do the trick, and even teach some valuable lessons along the way.
