And what's Hollow Fields, you ask? Well, it's basically mad scientist school. There's classes such as Cross-Species Body-Part Transplantation, Grave Robbing, and Live Taxidermy. But the most terrible thing about Hollow Fields? Detention. Each week the kid with the lowest grades is sent to detention -- and no one ever comes back.
Ahh, yes, the sinister plan. We wouldn't want to forget about that. Of course, I don't want to give it away, but I'll just say that the teachers are pretty much all mad scientists and they also aren't exactly human...
Why you should read it: Hollow Fields is both cute and creepy. I know that sounds kind of weird, but it's totally true. Plus, there's lots of weird, creepy science and spunky kids. Seriously, I wish I were as cool as those 12-year-olds!
