A young girl is sent to a progressive school, where she volunteers her classmates to go to a fictional European country to take part in a cultural festival. Here they witness the assassination of a king, and are challenged with helping the king's only son escape both the Nazis and his domineering aunt. Brilliantly told in Eva Ibbotson's classic style.
