Publisher Description

The first book in a witty, suspenseful new series about a brilliant new crime-solving duo: the teen descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This clever page-turner will appeal to fans of Maureen Johnson and Ally Carter.

Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices—and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends.

But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Thinking Face
“<strong>Incredibly addictive and lovely read</strong> This book was so much fun and the character work is to die for. I am head over heels in love with Jamie and Charlotte and I’m pretty excited to read the second one.”
“I liked it. The plot was good, the characters were diverse and interesting, and I really enjoyed the super fast pacing. One thing I liked was that James wasn’t the main character in his own story, at least in my opinion. I felt like he was telling Charlotte’s story, and he was just Charlotte’s friend. I’m not sure if that’s what the original stories of Sherlock Holmes were like or what the author intended, but I liked it. The plot was good, and everything made sense, but I have two problems with Charlotte’s older brother, Milo. I didn’t like how he swooped in the last couple pages because he made solutions so much easier. Instead of the main characters figuring out a new way around the conflict, Milo could just snap his fingers, spend a million dollars, and kidnap someone from across the world, and boom, problem solved. I also didn’t like how there was no justice for the main villain. I wish that she went to jail instead of having Milo “disappear her.” I also wish that there was justice for everyone involved, and I wish there was a more satisfying scene for that. But overall, a good read, and I would recommend.”
“Re read this book because it’s so fun. Loved the creative retelling and full of mystery and humor”
