What a fabulous new book from a great new author! Sharna Jackson is so "on the ball" with what today's children will love to read. The story is fun, clever and absolutely a page turner. We have a brilliant young detective duo determined to solve the murder in their high rise block. Nik and Norva are a real delight, one furiously writing her clues and deductions in her note book, the other "feeling it in her waters"!! I loved it! Roll on book 2 - it is going to be a trilogy ... I hope it becomes ...more

Only it hits a bit too close to home when they find friend and art teacher Hugo dead! But who done it!? All the evidence points to their dad, but when he is arrested, they

I was sent a finished copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Bounce Marketing I knew I was going to love this book! Not only is it an amazing read but it is also a very much needed novel as we need more books for children published with diverse characters like this.

Nik (11) and Norva (13) are sisters and live with their Dad in a tower block called the Tri. When their friend and art teacher Hugh is found murdered Nik and Norva are determined to solve the case even more so when the main
