Secrets. Everyone has them, even his school building. Benjamin Pratt finds this out as he tries to save his school, Oakes School, from a national development corporation. It is a race against time and the evil janitor, Lyman. Get the name: Ly-man?
The book is a cliff hanger the entire way through. Will they get caught? Will it be torn down? What happens that they do not foresee?
Clemens masterfully brings in American history and heart racing suspense together. A read both children and adults will enjoy.
