Patrick Shiner’s four years in a Long Island high school are sheer hell. He is oppressed in mind and body by bully Bobby Rocco.
Finally, he escapes to a college in upstate New York where he is delighted to meet high school beauty Paula Decker. In Creative Writing class, he exacts revenge on Bobby Rocco by describing vicious disasters that happen to him in college, only to discover that a reformed Bobby is indeed his new classmate and the disasters are all coming true.
Back on Long Island during Christmas break, Patrick learns that the classwork pages of his Pixie Parchment Paper Notebook are infested with witchcraft and that Bobby is doomed to an early death. Patrick then races back upstate to confront the witch, the monstrous horsedogs that have seized control of the old town of Rhinebeck, and the evil forces that threaten Bobby’s life.
