really liked it

This was really interesting, it had lots of drama and action.
At Hendricks School for Boys, Luke ( Lee ) has managed to adjust to his new life. Things change when the Grants, a Baron family who donated the name of their son when he died in a ski accident, decide to send the real Lee's brother, Smithfield ( Smits ), to the school and visit "Lee". Smits is still upset by the death of his brother, and tells Luke, the new Lee, his stories of times he and the real Lee spent together. But when Smits wants to get rid of his bodyguard, he sets the school on fire. After the fire, Luke is sent to search Smit's room and discovers two fake IDs in Smits' room: one with Smits' picture labeled Peter Goodard, the other had no picture and was labeled Stanley Goodard.Smits and Luke are then welcomed back by Luke's family.
Smits stays with Luke's family as a sort of fourth son that they had never been able to have. Luke then leaves with more unanswered questions.
