Benjamin Pratt's school is more than 200 years old and sits right on the harbor. The playground gets a breeze from the ocean, and the views from the classrooms are worth a million bucks. In this first book in the series, the town wants to knock down Ben's school and erect an amusement park, changing the landscape permanently. Ben and his friends do their best to foil a million-dollar deal that could destroy their school and change their lives forever.
