Belle has just been orphaned. When she's sent to Port Manteau, the school for heroic orphans, she has to quickly adjust to strange new classes and even stranger new classmates. But soon Belle falls in with the wrong crowd, the kind of kids that skip class to save the world. It all feels like fun and games until Belle incurs the wrath of a villain that's far more dangerous than she could imagine.
