Mancy Crew is a senior at River Peak High School. Due to her natural talents for investigation, she founded the River Peak High School Forensic Science Club last year. It has since grown into a serious investigative group that even the River Peak Police Department has needed the assistance from on occasion! All criminal activities that take place in River Peak High are immediately and thoroughly investigated by Mancy's team according to the investigative procedures that she has outlined with the River Peak High School Principal. Unfortunately, crime rates have been high and Mancy and her Club has been quite busy lately! Mancy recently received word from an anonymous person that there is a secret society called the Sisterhood of the Dangerous Secrets that has been active since the 1920s at River Peak High. Secret membership has passed down from generation to generation over the last 80+ years and this happens to be the year that the Sisterhood will strike again at River Peak High. Mancy has called an emergency meeting of the Forensic Science Club to discuss the mystery of the Dangerous Secrets so that the Forensics Science Club members might be able to put a stop to these so called 'secrets' and the harm they might cause to a single River Peak High student as they had supposedly done in the past. You'll need to report to the Teacher's Lounge of River Peak High. Get ready to sleuth the mystery! This is where your story
