A Girl Called Justice: The Ghost in the Garden by Elly Griffiths - Review

Monday, July 4, 2022

You all know by now that I love Elly Griffiths and all of her books, and I've been keeping an eye on her A Girl Called Justice series for a while. This is the third in the series, and I think it's improving all the time - Justice has a strong voice and character now, and seems to have settled into her school environment. In this book she's back at Highbury House, and there are plenty of new people there. There's a new girl in the form called Letitia, a new Matron, a new caretaker, and a new art teacher. 

Letitia latches on to Justice and puts a bit of a wedge between her and her best friend, Stella. The new art teacher makes the girls go outside to draw at one point. Letitia doesn't care for the rules of the school and seems to be getting away with not following them; the teachers don't tell her off. Even Justice realises some rules must be followed but can't seem to get through to Letitia. Then the girls have a midnight feast, and Letitia goes missing! 

Justice and Dorothy and Stella immediately try to find Letitia, uncovering some other secrets in the process! I thought this was a cute little mystery and I've now got the fourth to read too!
