It's a new semester at the world's top reform school, MUNCHEM ACADEMY!
The snow is melting, the roof is leaking, and Mattie Larimore's father is now in charge. Mattie is worried, though. Mr. Larimore is taking the whole "let's help Headmaster Rooney get back on his feet" thing seriously, and he's whispering all sorts of suggestions to the highly suggestible Rooney.
Then there's the matter of the school's weather. It's getting . . . strange. Mini-tornados sweep up out of nowhere. Rain pours inside. And there was that snowstorm-that yellow snowstorm.
