Bud and Laurie soon find themselves fighting to save their school, Tuckernuck Hall, from closing down. This time, Walker LeFranco, former school board president, claims that that the founder of the school is a murderer. Bud and Laurie stumble upon a secret room in the school and find the Marchetti’s bird, the only proof that could save the school’s reputation. Walker LeFranco tries to pass off a fake Marchetti’s bird, unaware of Bud and Laurie’s discovery. The seventh graders and the school librarian prove Maria Tutweiler’s innocence and save the school by revealing that LeFranco’s bird is false.
