A Murder Most Unladylike

by Robin Stevens

This book is about two girls called Daisy and Hazel who find out about a murder that has happened at Deep Dean Boarding School and they need to find out who it is, but it is not at all that easy.


I really like this book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is into mystery books. The reason I like this book is because one of my favourite genres is mystery and murder books and it was a good mix of the two.

I also like the fact that it is set in a boarding school because it gives the book more of an unusual setting, which hooks the reader in. The story-line to this book I thought was a very interesting one, because you wouldn’t usually get two children investigating a murder and, two, it was full of interesting vocabulary.


But one thing I would say is that it was quite a slow start and there wasn’t any interesting vocabulary or twists at the beginning of the book, and so to really get into the book you have to read on quite a bit. But then you can’t stop reading – I was on the edge of my seat all the time when I was reading it. I would turn the page and wonder what was going to happen next.


But overall, I enjoyed reading the book a lot and I would read it again and again if I could. This book is definitely one of my favourite books, it was amazing!
