Evil has descended upon Bay High! Well, they have a horrible new principle with a terrible plan. Maxine returns after a summer holiday with her dad to find the school has been split in two by the nasty Miss King.
A red line divides the school, separating girls from boys, and interacting with students of the opposite gender has been expressly forbidden. The year is destined to be a horrendous one, unless Maxine can get to the bottom of this mystery. Is there some secret to Miss Kings past that has destroyed her faith in friendship, and even love? Max is on the case!
