Friday Barnes has been deported to Switzerland...but we need her back! Highcrest Academy has descended into chaos. Someone's fired all the teachers as an epic prank, and suspicion falls on Ian Wainscott, Friday's nemesis (who's also desperately in love with her). There's also the problem of the new vice principal and his questionable behavior. It's hard to take someone seriously when he's wearing tie-dyed shirts, right? Can Friday prove Ian's innocence, find the prankster, and save her school? If it involves running, then probably not, but otherwise...Friday's on the case!

Have you ever met a snow beast? You would know if you had. They are nothing like us. Snow beasts are LOUD. Snow beasts are LARGE. And snow beasts are more than a little clumsy. But there is one thing you might have in common with a snow beast: sometimes they just want to make a friend.

Getting arrested was the last thing Friday expected after solving the swamp-yeti mystery at her boarding school. But she better clear her name fast! She’s got new cases to investigate, like a scandalous quiche bake-off, a decades old mystery buried in her school’s backyard and why the new boy, Christopher, is being so nice to her.
