Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens - Review

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

I read the third one in this series first and reviewed it here.

Where did I get it? The library!

What's it about? Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong have a Detective Society and in this mystery get tangled up in the murder of Miss Bell, after Hazel sees her dead body in the school gym. They have a list of suspects and need alibis - but can they get past Matron long enough to do their deducing?!

What age range is it for? 10+

Are any main characters LGBTQ+? No

Are any main characters non-white? Yes, Hazel is Chinese. There's not as much about that in this book as there is in the 3rd one, though. 

Are any main characters disabled either mentally or physically? No

Is there any sex stuff? No

Are drugs mentioned or used? No 

Is there any talk of death? Yes but it's not very gruesome. 

Are there swear words? No 

Would I recommend the book? Definitely. This series is a lot of fun. If I was ten years old, and into Malory Towers and other Blyton books, I'd be ALL OVER this series. Yes these aren't 'issue' books, but they're well written and just delightful to read. 

How many stars? 8 out of 10. Solidly good.
