The Mysterious Case of the Allbright Academy

The Mysterious Case of the Allbright Academy

The Mysterious Case of the Allbright Academy

Sisters Franny and Zo and their brother J.D. find themselves being admitted to an exclusive boarding school called the Allbright Academy. Only Zo really qualified but she refuses to attend unless her brother and sister can go too. That’s how bad the Academy wants to recruit Zo.

The school’s buildings and grounds are like a picture postcard, the food is exceptional and the school makes chocolate brownies available throughout the day. The kids at the school are smart, beautiful and dedicated to their studies. They are also overly nice. What could be better?

When Franny’s new friend Calpurnia gets sick and has to rest at home for a few weeks, she discovers something troubling. At home, she doesn’t seem nearly as bright or beautiful.  Something weird is definately going on. Is the Allbright Academy THAT good? What could the Allbright Academy be doing to makes its students so perfect?
