If you like this book you might like:
Both of these are for older readers but Etiquette and Espionage also features a really fun and whimsical school location while Death of a Schoolgirl is a mystery in which Jane Eyre investigates a murder at a girls’ school.

    I read the first book when it first came out, and I really liked it. But I haven’t read the others, and I’m wondering if I should re-read the first one before moving forward. What do you think? I’m so glad that you liked this one!

    Oh sounds like such a fun middle grade book! I love the illustrations that I’m guessing is from the book? But I miss seeing your illustrations for the book! Is this a second book because I feel like I’ve seen cover similar to this but in different context. So glad to see one of your reviews and I always love going over to your perfection blog. <3

    Oh those are my drawings! I didn’t use the computer for once I did them entirely using pen and pencil which is how I normally draw I I did try to imitate the style of the book covers though! Thank you! This book 4 it is a series but she explains former plot lines so you can read any of the series at any point I think!
