Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
New author Robin Stevens has a sharp ear for schoolgirl slang and acutely describes the minutiae of English boarding school life (buns, matrons, sneaks, japes, muddy lacrosse pitches and rain). Some might find the crimes rather grim for such a lighthearted book, but nevertheless midnight feasts and murder make entertaining bedfellows in this engaging Blyton/Christie mash-up. 10+
