Friday Barnes was not an unhappy child. That said, she wasn't deliriously over the moon either.Friday 56:
Friday patted the girl on the shoulder as her eyes leaked and her shoulders heaved. This girl was obviously an expert crier.Friday Barnes, Girl Detective by R. A. Spratt. I got this middle grade mystery ARC from Macmillan. Here is the description from Amazon:
Imagine if Sherlock Holmes was an eleven-year-old girl!
When Friday Barnes, girl genius, solves a bank robbery, she uses the reward money to send herself to Highcrest Academy, the most exclusive boarding school in the country―and discovers it's a hotbed of crime!
Soon she's investigating everything from disappearing homework to the terrifying Yeti haunting the school swamp. But the biggest mystery yet is Ian Wainscott, the handsomest (and most arrogant) boy in school who inexplicably hates her. Will the homework be found? Can they ever track down the Yeti? And why is Ian out to ruin her?
With black-and-white art throughout, Friday Barnes, Girl Detective is the launch of an exciting new mystery series Kirkus calls, "Delightful, highly logical, and well-informed fun."
