and made all of Heavenly Valley smooth and white and quiet and beautiful.
So begins the story of two orphaned sisters at Mrs. Mondayâs Boarding School. But nothing is heavenly for Nancy and Pamela (aka Plum): their parents died in a tragic accident years ago, theyâre constantly punished by the cruel Mrs. Monday, and theyâre all alone for the holidays.
Luckily, Nancy and Plum have each other, and though their prospects may be bleak, theyâre determined to change their lot for the better. If their plan works, the spirited sisters will never spend Christmas at the cold, dark boarding school again. But what will they find on the other side of Mrs. Mondayâs gate?
