The Book That Made Me: James Mayhew 17/07/19
Publisher: Knights Of
When their community art teacher Hugo is murdered on the council estate block, sisters Nik and Norva are determined to use their super sleuth skills (which are mighty) to solve the case. There are suspects aplenty (and, horribly, one of them is their lovely dad who had a public row with Hugo the night before he died) and budget cuts mean the police need all the help they can get!
This mystery is fast-paced, hilarious and exciting. The sparkling dialogue keeps readers turning the pages, barely breathing, and the characters are well rounded. It's also ultra-refreshing to have characters of colour and an ordinary life setting that so many readers will relate to.
Nik and Norva are totally lovable detectives to root for and we can’t wait to find out what their next case will be. A great new middle grade series.
