Her healthy curiosity is aroused when she meets her roommate, Bernadette, and the lonely tragic Chiquita, and at once elects herself as a local Sherlock Holmes.
Katie Milk Solves Reality-TV Crimes
A jam jar of money goes missing, mad nuns are running amok and Chiquita Morris has convinced herself she is the daughter of a famous model. Readers might be bored by the boarding school element but the author has created a heroine who has all the likable traits of comedy, practicality, justice and humanity. Thanks to Templar Publishing for their help with this May cover.
Post-Potter, the boarding school story continues to make a return to our shelves. Katie Milk, the girl who inherits a place at a convent school, provides an entertaining and down-to-earth narrative guide to the experience.
She enters a whole new world with its own mysteries, and these provide rich pickings for Katie, the young detective. There is a crime plot to the story, and it does have a clever twist in the tail, but this book thrives on the dynamics of the friendships and falling out between the girls who are central to the story.
