It’s 1983. Angie, Jenny and David are riding bikes, watching MTV and looking forward to
summer vacation before junior high. Lincoln, Nebraska is a pretty quiet place to grow up, and
when the kids take off at 5:00 am to deliver the newspapers on Jenny’s route, they aren’t
expecting trouble. So, when a creature straight out of a horror movie appears, the kids are
forced to draw on their wits, their strength, and most of all their friendship to survive.
Something Wicked is the first of seven stories, drawn from Angie’s diaries. Kept safely hidden
for decades, they tell how the kids spent their teenage years - working with their mentor, Mr.
Rakow, and Jenny’s mom who dabbles in witchcraft, to uncover their powers and battle the
forces of darkness that menace their hometown.
