The Education of Pip

He had never experienced possibilities — and it was a whole new feeling to have them.

Pip Standish is in Newgate Prison, a predictable career finale for a London thief. So he is surprised when Lord Finlington, the dashing viscount he attempted to steal from months before, offers to get him out — on the condition that Pip agrees to leave town and start a new career in the country.

Soon, Pip finds himself moving to the idyllic Tutting-on-Cress and a life he never thought possible. As he settles in with his new friends, he discovers a well-rounded education not only involves reading and magic, but how to be happy, how to trust others with your heart, and how to let go of pain.

But when an attempt to settle an old debt reopens a dangerous wound, Pip will need to apply all of his hard-earned lessons to stop the past swallowing him — and his future — whole.

This new adult fantasy is the third book in the Meddle & Mend series. It is a continuation of Pip’s story from One Good Turn.

What readers are saying about The Education of Pip:

“The Education of Pip is a cathartic, heartfelt little story. This is a quiet, character-focused series […] you’ll be enchanted by Wallace’s hopeful world and charming cast of characters.”

CL Jarvis on Goodreads

I just cannot say enough how much I love Wallace’s characters, and getting to read these books where good things happen to them is just the absolute best.”

Wayward Bookshelf on Goodreads

I love these characters So. Dang. Much! I’m SO happy we got to read about Pip’s story. I loved him from the moment he showed up in the second book, and of course Bertie has been a favorite from the very beginning. The found family in this story, the unconditional support for someone struggling to move forward from a difficult past, and of course one of my favorite forms of magic I’ve ever read about... this is my new favorite in the series, for sure.”

You know that feeling of sitting on the couch, cuddled up under a blanket with your cat and a steaming hot cup of tea? That’s exactly what I felt like when I was reading this book. That alone should be enough to convince you to read it too”

“I said it before and I’ll say it again: this book gave me a praise kink. Seriously though, I love Pip and I love how sweet all the characters are with him […] and it’s just so sweet I could die
