Going back to school in the afternoon for a school club? Liam isn’t feeling it but the Gardening Club sounds like the best of the bunch. At least he’ll be out in the fresh air. But when Liam meets his teacher and the other students and even finds a treasure while he’s digging over the school garden, he decides he actually kind of likes it at school. What will Liam find in the treasure chest he has dug up?
