Set in Australia, the Wheelers have moved to the Outback. Eleanor doesn't fit in because she's more advanced in lessons and the kids think she's showing off. She hides out in the old shack where her grandmother used to go to school. She finds her grandmother's diary which describes a secret place up beyond the bend. A brush fire puts her and her brother in danger. Eleanor must try to discover the cave's whereabouts or they will die.
