Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

From New York Times bestselling authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins comes the third entry in this offbeat series about a group of magical misfits.Some people in school are afraid of the kids in the Upside-Down Magic class. Others just call them flops. But Nory and her friends in Upside-down Magic won't let that stop them. Not with a school-wide talent show coming up! Except... Nory's afraid her fluxing magic will go wonky and upset her father. Pepper is worried that her abilities as a Fierce will make all the animals in the show run wild. Bax has some extreme new magic skills, but they can also be extremely embarrassing. And Elliott suspects there's a Sparkie spy who's looking to uncover UDM's talent-show secrets-and to use those secrets against them. In order to take the stage and make some magic, the Upside-Down Magic kids are going to have to band together... and find the right combination of talents to steal the show!

The Dunwiddle Magic School (fifth to eighth grade) is intended for children whose magic is "upside-down" like Dory (who turns into a combination of a kitten and dragon) and Pepper (whose uncontrollable "fiercing" terrifies everyone around her)--so the Show Off, where fifth grade students are supposed to showcase their skills, does not really seem like a good idea.

Horn Book Review

The Upside-Down Magic class, fifth graders with "wonky magic," prepares for the Dunwiddle Magic School talent show. Pepper has been working on controlling her animal-scaring ability. If she can't, Nory (who changes into animals, if wonky ones) might have to sit out. Meanwhile, Nory is stressed about her father's arrival. Loyalties are tested, and new friendships deepen this breezy third entry. (c) Copyright 2017. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
