Twelve-year-old Emmy knows very little about her father who mysteriously disappeared on her third birthday. Only days before being sent to yet another new private school—this time a boarding school in England—Emmy finds a letter mentioning her father which leads her to find a box of mysterious medallions in the attic. Once she arrives at Wellsworth Academy, she learns her father also had been a student, and trying to learn more about him leads her to discover age-old secret societies and dangerous secrets. A promising new series for 4th-7th graders.

The first in an exciting new series, this suspenseful debut brings readers on a journey filled with secrets, mystery, and unforgettable characters.

With a dad who disappeared years ago and a mother who's a bit too busy to parent, Emmy is shipped off to Wellsworth, a prestigious boarding school in England, where she's sure she won't fit in.

But then she finds a box of mysterious medallions in the attic of her home--medallions that belonged to her father. Her father who may have gone to Wellsworth.

When she arrives at school, she finds the strange symbols from the medallions etched into walls and books, which leads Emmy and her new friends, Jack and Lola, to Wellsworth's secret society: The Order of Black Hollow Lane. Emmy can't help but think that the society had something to do with her dad's disappearance, and that there may be more than just dark secrets in the halls of Wellsworth...
