Julia Reynolds is a twenty-first century Nancy Drew, a little more suspicious, a lot more daring and maybe just a little more fragile, too. Often uprooted by her parents, Julia is always the girl that never quite fits in, but she is smart, headstrong and needs answers to questions many of us wouldn’t think to ask.

Julia has just moved back to New Orleans and she is determined to find out what happened to her missing cousin. When she learns of the Ursuline Convent, one of New Orleans’ landmark bu

The difference between us normal people and writers is that they see what we never see and imagine what we never could. Shadow Lilies takes you on a journey through New Orleans that you will never forget. Follow sixteen year old Julia Reynolds as she tries to discover the mystery of the Ursuline Convent. This book is easily the best book I have read this year.

This is a ya mystery that has a few twists and a wonderful main character. I instantly liked Julia, from her awkwardness to her never give up attitude. At times, her actions are a bit hard to believe but she has a feistiness to her that I enjoyed.

*I received a copy of this, but all views are my own.*

This book had me hooked from the beginning. I love mysteries, and I enjoy well-written YA novels. This book was both, and I cannot wait to read the next one.

Julia is a fantastic main character. I love her stubbornness, and I feel for her self-consciousness. Both get her into trouble at times, but she is a very brave character, and I found her relatable. I love that she wants to be a journalist and she is passionate about solving mysteries an

It's been several months since I read YA, and even longer for a YA mystery. Julia is an unlikely contemporary YA heroine--a gritty, modern Nancy Drew.
Unique characters/family life, interesting setting, suspenseful read.

Loved how Mrs. Ward wove the legends of the Ursuline Convent in New Orleans with her modern-day story. The MC, Julia, is interesting to follow to see how far she'll go to figure out what happened to her beloved missing cousin. Ending had a twist I didn't see coming so that's always fun
