2015 book 86

Robin Stevens' A Murder Most Unladylike
This was a super cute historical YA mystery--that genre is my JAM--about two girls at a boarding school in England who have formed a detective agency.  I liked that after one finds a dead body, and they have a REAL mystery to solve, one is like "oh shiiiiiiiit, this is crazy" and the other is like "yay I'm like I'm in a detective story!" I also liked that one was a girl from Hong Kong, and the story doesn't shy away from the casual period racism she has to deal with. I guess this is a British series being introduced in America, but the title here is "Murder is Bad Manners" which is not really as cool. A-.
