Description - Minus Magic by Emma Laybourn
Ned is just starting at a new school, a worrying time as he is badly disabled- he can do no magic at all, although everyone else can. He is badly bullied at first and then just as he is finally settling in, the fearful Necromancers strike, and he and his friends are kidnapped. They find themselves in an airship, with many other stolen children, and they must all work magic to keep it flying. As Ned's friends resourcefully start an escape strategy, Ned is distracted by the arrival of his fabulous uncle, the best mage in the whole world. But he turns out to be in league with the Necromancers! Now they must fight him, too, to gain their freedom. Then he unleashes a spell which takes the magic from everyone - and the entire country. Everything held together by magic falls apart. The whole population must learn how to do everything properly, without the crutch of magic.
