First book in a great series of five. The students become the 'keepers' of the school and must protect it from demolition by a developer who wants to put up an amusement park in its place on prime ocean front land.

"At this moment, there are exactly two Keepers of the School-you and me."

"That's right," said Jill. "We the children."

He spotted Jill sitting about thirty feet away, face tipped toward the sun, her straight brown hair tucked behind one ear and slanted across her neck. And Ben decided that when her mouth wasn't full of tuna salad, she was sort of pretty.

Robert said, "This is great, huh? Sorry to butt in and everything, but I really need the extra points. For my grade." Ben nodded and tried to smile. Right, for his grade. He probably wanted to get an A++ in social studies instead of just an A+
