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...

'A fast-paced mystery with lots of humor, adventure, and suprising twists! This book has it all.' — Jessica Day George, New York Times best-selling author of Tuesdays at the Castle and Dragon Slippers
