MURDER IS BAD MANNERS, by Robin Stevens

Bad manners
The story: It’s one thing to SAY you’re a detective, and another thing to investigate a murder–especially when you’re a 13-year-old student at an all-girls boarding school, and the murderer is probably one of your teachers! Meet Wells and Wong, who specialize in snooping as an extra-curricular activity (right in between Latin and field hockey) but who never thought that poking their noses into a crime might turn out to be super risky for the detectives…or that it might drive the murderer to kill again!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Daisy and Hazel are more than your average set of middle-school sleuths: Daisy can get a little obnoxious at times, and Hazel is essentially a Chinese Watson to Daisy’s Sherlock. A murder mystery in a classic setting, this is Agatha Christie for the middle-school crowd!
