Murder Most Unladylike by Robin StevensBUY THIS BOOK
When Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong set up their very own secret detective agency at Deepdean School for Girls, they struggle to find any truly exciting mysteries to investigate. (Unless you count the case of Lavinia’s missing tie. Which they don’t.)
Then Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the Gym. She assumes it was a terrible accident – but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body has disappeared. Now Hazel and Daisy not only have a murder to solve: they have to prove one happened in the first place.
Determined to get to the bottom of the crime before the killer strikes again (and before the police can get there first, naturally), Hazel and Daisy must hunt for evidence, spy on their suspects and use all the cunning and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test?

Winner of the Waterstone’s Best Fiction for 5-12’s Award 2015 The first in a fabulous and exciting new detective series set during the 1930’s. Daisy Wells (not just a perfect English Miss) and Hazel Wong (astute and observant) have started a secret Detective Society at the Deepdene School for girls. The girls have a typical friendship, with some wonderful highs and sorrowful lows. After finding a dead body, which then disappears, the girls are racing to stay one step ahead and solve the clues. There is a clear and detailed map of the school at the front of the book which is really useful to follow as the girls start their adventure. There is a feel of the Famous Five about this charming book (yes it’s charming, even though there has been a murder). Robin Stevens sets all of the clues in motion, encouraging them to run riot, to cause mischief, they are all there though, can you solve the murder… can the girls solve the murder, before it’s too late? Wonderfully fast paced and set in a fascinating period, this is an entertaining and gripping read. ~ Liz Robinson
