Get His Help This Was Most Disappointing I Ve Readhis help This was most disappointing I ve read oved 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 ike 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 ogistics 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 the murderer was in my opinion far too weak convoluted and unrealistic I felt the murderer was I adore this middle grade series it is just so delightful and funny and uirky And I am so pleased my middle grader PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition loves them too what a realistic portrayal of girl friendships the fallings out the making up 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 5 StarsAhh this was the best one yetIoved 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 Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography like an Enid Blyton boarding school story but add murder and a ton of teenage political intrigue I absolutelyoved the incorporation of the secrets gave me 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 The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, 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 uite 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 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 andoving this se.

into something very for me and my bookish ways I am a school story fan I read a ot of authors who aren t the ones you d find in shops today Angela Brazil Elinor M Brent Dyer I ove the roots I suppose of British children s The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl literature Of those books thative in schools or windswept moors or in the attics of deepest London with nothing but dreams to keep you alive in the darknessI think perhaps what I ove with the Wells and Wong series is how it fits How it talks back to those books and how it talks forward to the books yet to come These are complex tightly plotted books and they are I imagine not easy to write But they are so easy so delightful so addictively gorgeous to read And though thisFit Into Something Very
