Profile Picture

 Jillian Cassidy dreads going to school because she is badly bullied, so when she finds out she's been enrolled in a semester at her mom's old boarding school, she couldn't be happier. Jillian and her new friends Meghan, Samantha, and Sadie go on plenty of adventures, but the fun doesn't end there. When Jillian accidentally sends the three of them back in time 50 years to when her mom was at the school, you can't blame them for panicking quite a bit especially because during this time a war has started.
