AbstractHistoryArchive Description

From the moment Miss Payne ("The Hound of the Baskervilles, the English teacher from Hell. The Pitbull!") walks into their classroom, Calma and Kiffo know she will have to go. After doing a bit of, well, teacher stalking, they are amazed to discover her having late-night rendezvous with suspicious associates. Could she be involved in the mob? The drug trade? How fabulous! But the more they work to prove Miss Payne is crooked, the more evidence they find of her innocence. Creeping hell! A teacher this heinous has got to be guilty of something - right? (Publisher blurb, American ed.)
