“While also thwarting a monstrous killing spree terrorising the local town and solving the supernatural mystery that engulfed her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships with the strange and diverse student body,” reads the synopsis, “the series will chart the titular heroine’s years as a student at the peculiar Nevermore Academy as she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability.”
