Nicole was min lus om die vakansie saam met haar ma Weskus toe te kom. Sy wou liewer by die huis bly om Golden Acres, dié ryskool in Pretoria, se perdespringkursus by te woon.
Hoe sleg gaan haar vakansiefoto’s nie afsteek teen Chané se Mauritius-foto’s nie? En wat gaan sy heeldag doen tussen ’n klomp mariene bioloë wat net oor hulle navorsing kan praat?
Maar die Weskus is ’n verrassende plek . . .

Die skool en koshuis op Kosterkloof het weer na normaal teruggekeer ná die skoolhoof se komplot om kinders se DNA aan ruimtewesens te verkoop, oopgevlek is. Die kinders word nou aangemoedig om gesond te eet en ook sport te beoefen. Emma kom egter gou agter dat die blou koelsakke wat die onderhoof in die middel van die nag kombuis toe dra, nie die rugbyspan se koeldranke bevat soos hy beweer nie.

Emma besluit natuurlik om ondersoek in te stel, maar niks kan haar en Zoltan egter voorberei vir die gruwelike fonds wat hulle een aand in die koelsakke ontdek nie . . .

The buildings themselves looked scared. The schoolyard was full of weeds and rubbish: broken bottles, out-of-shape cans, skins from long-ago-eaten bananas, mango pips and things you could no longer tell what they had been before they all came and got vrot there. We never played in our schoolyard. Too scared of what might happen. And a lot happened in that yard ... and most of it wasn't nice stuff. Until ...
