Jon Marable is beyond awesome. Jon Marable has built a monkey-powered rocket ship to Mars. Jon Marable once punched a bear so hard it exploded into several smaller bears. Jon Marable has achieved the highest score possible in Tetris. Jon Marable is the eternal unblinking blood-shot eye of the donut in the heart of the internet. Jon Marable saw a deer once. Jon Marable has way too much time on his hands and an increasingly unhealthy ego. But Jon Marable is definitely NOT a jazz musician.
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.
