Two geeks at a school, one a long-standing member of the community, and one a newcomer, must team up to save the latter girl's father from being blackmailed by the school's bratty girl contingent. This was geared too young for me to want to continue, but for a young audience I'm sure it would have been just fine. Very standard American manga art, and the two main characters are done well enough that you do care what happens to them. (Library, 07/06?)

Kat's father takes a job as a science teacher at a wealthy prep school in New Hampshire. The family is broke and Kat is nervous about not fitting in at Dover Academy. She quickly becomes friends with Mee-Seen (Mouse) and the two try to solve some mysterious crimes taking place around campus. Someone is trying to blackmail Kat's father into giving good grades, so it seems that the culprit must be in 7th grade.

Cute comic for kids about school dramas and detective work involving science. It even ends with a DIY home experiment and some great role models for smart girls.
