Zimmerman Academy is a spinoff of the popular Zoe Donovan Series. Each novella is told from the perspective of one of the minor characters. Book 2 in the series - New Beginnings - is told from the perspective of Zimmerman Academy principal Phyllis King. This particular edition has two parts. In the first part of the book I have reprinted all of the Zimmerman Academy Shorts as narrated by Phyllis which were included in the Zoe Donovan Books: Hopscotch Homicide, Ghostly Graveyard, and Santa Sleuth. Part two of the book is a new short story titled The Birthday Mystery. This story takes place on Phyllis's sixty-third birthday. She is planning a quiet evening at home, much like the sort of evening she has spent on her previous birthdays, when Hazel Hampton (the town librarian), Ethan Carlton (Zimmerman Academy History Professor), and Luke Donovan (Zoe's grandpa and Hazel's boyfriend) pull her into a birthday mystery.
