The magic beast gets introduced by Orphan who told a tale of the school (duh) about two brothers disappearing in the forest (duh).

The War at Ellsmere focuses on Juniper, a girl who has got into a boarding school on a full scholarship. The characters are done so well, the evil snob, the sweet friend and Juniper, the tough scholarship girl out to prove herself. But living at Ellsmere is far from ideal: She is labeled a “special project,” Ellsmere’s queen bee is out to destroy her, and it’s rumored that a mythical beast roams the forest next to the school. Loved the characters (especially the self-aware evil henchwomen) and the ending sets things up nicely for a sequel.She (of course) catches the evil eye of a girl who is never really stated to be the most popular, though at least as concerns Jun's story, the girl is far-away the most powerful.

Given that Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong was first published in 2013 and there is no sequel (as far as I can find) I think you’ll need to assume there won’t be a sequel. Both were beautifully cooked and of exceptional quality; the freshest eggs, good quality local bacon and sausages and loads of toast.This graphic novels melds a lot of great elements: there's the "misfit at boarding school" story, the developing friendship between Cassie and Jun, the rivalry between Emily and Jun, and the weird hints of magic on the school grounds.

She has once again managed to bring out the feelings of isolation of the main character but does so in a way where the character does not come across as weak. I personally would have ended it differently and I really wanted Juniper to triumph over Emily (she does to some degree but not as much as I would have liked) but hey ho; it's only a minor thing.

As well as the confrontations with Emily that see Juniper almost expelled there are funny moments, like building a snowman or Juniper trying to paint a self-portrait. All three parts of the trilogy as well as notes from Peter and me are contained in this lovely (and huge! In further Avatar news, there will be a brand new stand-alone graphic novel about Katara published in October. But living at Ellsmere is far from she is labeled a ‘special project’, Ellsmere’s queen bee is out to destroy both her and her new friend Cassie, and it’s rumored that a mythical beast roams the forest next to the school . This precedes and is not nearly as good as Friends with Boys but has her deft, manga-esque capturing of emotions with small gestures and lines.
