When the injured custodian at Benjamin Pratt's school hands him a coin and makes Ben promise to keep it a secret, Ben doesn't really understand what has happened. But when the custodian dies, Ben understands that's he's been handed a mystery and a quest--to save his school--and that he needs help. He enlists the help of Jill Acton, a bright classmate, to help discover how they can keep the school and the property around it from being developed into a huge amusement park. Readers must follow the series to learn what the duo learn about their school's history and what actions they must take.
A secondary element in the story deals with Ben's relationship with his parents, who are separated, and with an antagonistic classmate with whom Ben must work.
