The teacher looked distressed as she greeted me.  “I can’t believe what happened to my class,” she said.

I braced myself.  Behind her, hundreds of excited kids were filing in to the gym.  They sat in sections based on the colors of their shirts: red, blue, green, gold, representing the four branches of the Cahill family.  Most were dressed as 39 Clues characters.  Jonah Wizard (with his bling) and Nellie Gomez (with her punk attire) were very popular — but also a set of twins dressed as fish (Saladin’s red snapper), a girl in a three-piece suit (Jonah’s dad), and a guy dressed as Nellie.
