Summary

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong have returned to Deepdean for a new school term, but nothing is the same. There's a new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and a team of Prefects - and these bullying Big Girls are certainly not good eggs. Then, after the fireworks display on Bonfire Night, Elizabeth is found - murdered.

Many girls at Deepdean had reason to hate Elizabeth, but who might have committed such foul play? Could the murder be linked to the secrets and scandals, scribbled on scraps of paper, that are suddenly appearing around the school? And with their own friendship falling to pieces, how will Daisy and Hazel solve this mystery?

6 stars out of 5

I love this book. Some people say in their reviews "suitable for ages 6-12" or something. I say ' suitable for as soon as you learn to read-1000 years old'. In case you want to know though I am nearly 16.

A great children's book

All books in this series are loved by my children (and my husband). This was no exception. The characters are believable and likeable. We always fail to work out 'whodunnit' although I had more idea in this one than most. A good read.

One of the best mysteries I’ve heard

This book was amazing. I read it when it came out and Katie Leung reads so masterfully that she makes you feel like you are in the story. 10/10.

New narrator same great stories

I enjoyed Gemma Chan's narration for it's upbeat "jolly hockey sticks" feel, where Katie Leung's performance has a sweeter more naive quality. Both are great and really suit the stories. I look forward to more.
