Susie Day, author: “I absolutely loved it – it’s charming and witty and there’s so much in terms of in-jokes and she really grabs hold of all the traditions of this type of story and runs with them. You’ve got bunbreak, squashed fly biscuits and dormitories...but at the same time as this thrilling murder mystery.” 

Tom Percival, author and illustrator: “Characters really engaging and I enjoyed the dynamics of this ‘best friend’ relationship that had lots of insecurities and jealousies. I got so caught up in their relationship and friendship....really exciting and engaging.”

Melissa Cox, Head Children’s Buyer Waterstones: “Nice balance struck between including the character and being inclusive in the writing but also acknowledging the difficulty of having a girl from Hong Kong in that (historical) context.  Really cleverly done and unexpected for what I thought would be a straightforward whodunit caper. It really added an extra interesting element and good on Robin for doing it.”

Deepdean School for Girls, 1934. When Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong set up their very own deadly secret detective agency, they struggle to find any truly exciting mysteries to investigate. (Unless you count the case of Lavinia’s missing tie. Which they don’t, really.)

But then Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the Gym. She thinks it must all have been a terrible accident—but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body has disappeared. Now the girls know a murder must have taken place…and there’s more than one person at Deepdean with a motive.

Now Hazel and Daisy not only have a murder to solve: they have to prove a murder 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, scheming and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test?

“Plotting is what sets this book apart; this is about who was where at the time of the murder, and it’s about finding the chink in the alibi. Stevens’s duo – Daisy, who hides her sharpness under a chummy exterior, and Hazel, recently arrived from Hong Kong and out of place in an English boarding school – are interesting enough to hold up a second volume.” –Lorna Bradbury, The Telegraph UK

It’s the Easter holidays, and Daisy has invited Hazel to her country manor for Daisy’s fourteenth birthday. Lady Hastings has planned a birthday party—but when the guests arrive, it becomes clear that this party isn't really about Daisy at all. Daisy's furious, and Hazel's feeling more and more out of place—even the arrival of Daisy's dashing Uncle Felix, the black sheep of the family, can't cheer the girls up.

But then, at Daisy's birthday tea, one of the guests is taken ill. He dies a few hours later, of arsenic poisoning - and it soon becomes clear that someone in the house must be to blame.

Daisy, of course, can't wait to begin the investigation. Hazel, though, is more cautious. It was Lord Hastings, Daisy's father, who handed the victim the poisoned cup of tea—what if he really is the murderer? Hazel thinks Daisy could be ignoring how serious the situation really is. Can the Detective Society solve their second case—and do they even want to?

A Wells and Wong Mystery Book 3

Agent: Gemma Cooper
Genre: Middle-grade

After their exploits at Easter, Daisy and Hazel are ready to pass their summer in an adventure of a different kind: a visit to Hazel’s family in Hong Kong. But murder seems to follow them around, and they find themselves investigating a suspicious death on board a steam liner.

SLJ, July 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
«“Shea’s humor is spot-on in Sherriff Ryan’s unwavering logic and assumptions, and his distinct characters will make this an instant hit. Smith’s illustrations, with grainy color and vivid textures, match the deadpan silliness to a tee.”

«“[Mariko and Jillian Tamaki] exploit the graphic novel form to its fullest potential…Stunning.”

Paste Magazine, June 5, 2014: READ IT HERE!

BODY IN THE WOODS by April Henry
MacTeenBooks, June 13, 2014: Author Blog: On Inspiration and Editing
“When I learned that MCSO SAR not only looks for people lost in the wilderness but also searches for crime scene evidence and even recovers bodies, I knew it what I had long sought: a realistic idea for a teen mystery series.”

EDWARD HOPPER PAINTS HIS WORLD by Robert Burleigh, illus. by Wendell Minor
SLJ, July 2014 issue
