Laurie is a sixth grade student at Tuckernuck Hall, wishing she could leave the private school and join her best friend at the local public school.  Unluckily for her, her parents attended Tuckernuck Hall and will not consider letting her transfer.  The school has a rich history that includes a legend about a hidden treasure.  While working “gerbil duty” with an annoying classmate, Laurie stumbles upon a clue that leads her to think the treasure may be more than legend.  Will Laurie and Bud be able to find the treasure and save the school from financial ruin?  Can they keep their treasure-hunting activities secret from curious classmates? Will finding the treasure help Laurie convince her parents to let her transfer to public school?  Or if she finds the treasure, will she still want to transfer?  The answer to these mysteries (and more) awaits readers!  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award, 2015)
