in the book and the fact that Hazel and Daisy s roommates were involved the next book and fact that Hazel and Daisy s roommates were involved solving the crime The girls the merrier Sometimes I think back to that first moment I read Robin Stevens Murder Most Unladylike ticked all of my literary boxes in a way I wasn t sure was ever really going to happen Of course there are books out there that I love books out there that fire my brain into strange and wonderful places books that make me gasp and weep at their perfection but then there s the Wells and Wong books and the way they fit into something very perfect for me and my bookish ways I am a school story fan I read a lot of authors who aren t the ones you d find in shops today Angela Brazil Elinor M Brent Dyer I love the roots I suppose of British children s literature Of those books that live in schools or windswept moors or in the attics of deepest London wit Another adorable and engaging mystery Exactly the kind of cozy and interesting book I needed to read And this time I didn t even guess the right murderer in advance So excited to continue on reading and loving this series 5 StarsAhh this was the best one yetI loved being back at Deepdean What really made this book were the complex dynamics at the school the powerplay between the younger girls and the older girls and the girls in between and within each group Basically this is like an Enid Blyton boarding school story but add murder and a ton of teenage political intrigue I absolutely loved the incorporation Of The Secrets Gave the secrets gave Mean Girls Burn Book vibes and how big a part they played in this mystery While Arsenic for Tea remains the strongest mystery of the series this one still had me guessing til near the end and the tension remained high throughout We also have some character development for both Daisy and Hazel who are wonderfully flawed three dimensional protagonists who make many a YA and adult protagonist look two dimensional in comparison Getting to see of their friends was also a plus How cute is BeanieOverall just a really great book The next one is set in Cambridge which should be funCW public outing of two girls which I feel was handled ite sensitively but still worth noting view spoilerHazel empathises with the girls from the start knowing how it feels to be ostracised for being different the outing is clearly shown to be wrong and the girls who are outed get a happy ending hide spoiler.

investigating difficult younger student binnie goes missing and difficult Younger student Binnie goes missing and is feared that the murderer has taken her With time running out Hazel and Daisy make p double Dance With The Devil up on investigating and figure out who the murderer is before it s too late Strengths Anyone who is a fan of Agatha Christie Dorothy Sayers or British boarding school stories will adore this series The fact that there are actual murders at the school make it easier to get these into the hands of students who might not want to read about England in the 1930s The mean girl exploits however as well as the investigative techniues make this a series that I wish of my students would read The covers are also brilliant Weaknesses There is a romance between two of the girls that is judged harshly than I think it would have been at the time After all in the wake of WWI there were a lot of highly educated women who lived with female partners and it was just kind of accepted It just doesn t seem historically accurate that students would have cared about it What I really think Definitely purchase these for my library They aren t huge circulators but I can see them being around for a long time I want this series to go on forever Even though these books are MG I am obsessed with them I read every single one in a one sitting and they just get better and better The friendship between Daisy and Hazel is getting complicated and messy as they get older and I can t wait to see where it goes next It s odd to write my first review of a series four books in butp Smitten until this one the series is very much exactly what it says on the tin a fun cleverpdate of the classic Holmes and Watson mys Another perfect installment in the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries I m going to be reviewing this at some point next week when I can think of enough synonyms for brilliantEDIT 16032018 We were all looking p and so we missed the murder Bonfire Night at Deepdean goes off with a bang when Head Girl Elizabeth is found dead at the end of the fireworks display Lying next to her is a bloody rake so it s agreed that her death must have been an accident the caretaker Jones must have carelessly left the rake on the floor The new headmistress More murder mystery and even fun what s not to like My favourite moments were Alexander s letters I m definitely looking forwa.

I adore this middle grade series it is just so delightful and funny and irky And I am so pleased my middle grader loves them too what a realistic portrayal of girl friendships the fallings out the making p the defining your own person and standing your ground being part of a group but not being swept away If you have a middle grader get them this book This was most disappointing I ve read and loved the first three Wells and Wongs mysteries they were charming clever were a homage to detective classics and had progressive character growth Jolly Foul Play on the other hand felt like it was part of another series entirely There were three things in particular that bothered me The murder itself and how it was solved was extremely confusing I had a difficult time following the logistics of who was where at what time and where they were supposed to be instead that I felt I had no hopes of solving it on my own In addition the motive of solving it on my own In addition the motive of murderer was in my opinion far too weak convoluted and nrealistic I felt the murderer was chosen not for being the best choice but simply to provide a twist The story was far too juvenile and too emotionally intense both in the characters treatment of one another and the secrets that were progressively revealed There was so Much Bullying Cattiness Cruelty bullying cattiness cruelty and maliciousness it was awful how the students at the boarding school treated one another It felt far too exaggerated to be realistic and made the reading experience Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, unpleasant and emotionally draining Even our Heroines Hazel and Daisy spent most of the story fighting giving the reader no reprieve The book also contained content I personally do not feel is appropriate for the age range view spoilerA homosexual relationship in a children s book especially one set in the 1930s I m sorry but no I don t agree that s the appropriate age range for that hide spoiler E ARC from Edelweiss PlusWhen Head Girl Elizabeth dies of injuries after the school s Guy Fawkes bonfire Daisy and Hazel suspect that she was murdered The position of the rake wasn t right but this doesn t stop the head gardener from being fired When pages from a notebook Elizabeth kept of everyone s secrets keep croppingp the Detective Society realizes they have their motive The five prefects are also suspects and the girls work on narrowing them down When Hazel writes to Daisy s cousin Alexander and shares details of the inve.
