Noël is in shock: his friend was supposed to give him a silver jewel case from the headmaster, but it has been stolen! Noël had great hopes that the contents might be related to his mother’s disappearance. When he rows across to the popular headmaster’s island to ask her about it, he receives some awful news: Mrs Moa has left the boarding school for good.

About the Series
