Beaten, broken, abused. . . . All of those words could of been used to described Elizabeth "Lizza" Randell. At age twelve, she runs away from her abusive dad. She's fifteen when a old man with twinkling blue eyes, a long beard, half-moon glasses, and a secret finds her. The secret? Lizza's a witch! She is taken to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where the old man -- who she found out was Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster -- adopts her! Lizza's super excited! She learns to fly, deal with mean teachers, and finds her first love -- a prank-pulling twin, older brother to one of her new best friends. Then Lizza meets her dad . . . her real one that is, and she's shocked at who it really is. . . .
