Polly and Kester Parish are bored of first days. This is their fifth new school in five years thanks to Mum’s job. This school seems a bit different though. Every student seems to have suffered a random freaky accident. Some of them enjoy snapping their limbs and slamming their fingers in doors. That Head Mistress is definitely not all there, not to mention the creepy caretaker. Welcome to The Other School - once you’re part of the system it’ll never let you leave!!
