Title: The Mystery of Misty Rease
Life at the Carlos Cory School for Gifted Orphans is not a bed of roses; the academic regimen is punishing and the discipline is worse, but once a year you get to go on vacation. Two years ago you visited Miss Flaumel, and instead of going to socialite balls, you rescued Miss Trees from a sabre-tooth tiger and a sticky end. Last year you went camping in the national forest, and instead of rock-climbing, white-water rafting and so forth, you defeated a dozen demons and saved the world. It makes a change.
This year you are not going camping. All that rock-climbing, and rafting and stuff can be great fun, but it's also cold and dirty and the food is terrible. This year you have a much better plan with more fun, better food and far fewer teachers. Just as soon as the rest of them go off camping and most of the staff clear off, you can put your plan into action. You have to admit though, it would be easier to organise your secret vacation if that new kid did not keep popping up. Everyone knows it is tough going to a new school and making new friends, especially if your parents have just died and stuff, it's easy to try too hard. But does she have to follow you everywhere?
