After a disastrous fire in the village leaves a family without a home, Alice-Miranda and her friends pitch in to help. They decide to hold a music festival to raise funds. The only trouble is, not everyone's as keen on the idea.
Things are also heating up in Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale School for Proper Young Ladies with Miss Reedy at the helm. The arrival of a new teacher, a deputy turned diva, and an entire faculty of disgruntled staff sees tempers flare. Has the power gone to Miss Reedy's head, or is there a sinister hand at play? One thing is for certain: there's no smoke without fire.
Alice-Miranda is put to the test to ensure the festival is a resounding success and not one very hot mess!
