Sometimes what you really need to read is a middle-grade mystery story. Good news! Because this is exactly that.

The Missing Diamonds is the first in a new detective series, about Zaiba, a keen crime-solver, her best friend Poppy, and her little brother Ali. While at a hotel for her cousin’s Mehndi party, Zaiba and co. end up embroiled in a mystery when a pop star’s dog goes missing, and with it, diamonds.

This story is about Zaiba a young Secret Agent who uncovers the identity and theft of a VIP guest, whilst attending her cousin's pre-wedding party in a hotel. Her best friend Poppy and her younger half-brother Ali help her.
I like the relatable characters, how it's written, the dialogues, the descriptions and there are pictures. I also like the content with having a young Pakistani girl as being the lead, which would be great for young female readers, possibly Year 3 +.

This book was so much fun. Zaiba wants to be a detective, so when a dog escapes and his diamond collar goes missing, she and her friend and brother investigate. Dog related chaos ensues! And eventually the solving of the mystery. As well as the great story, the book is peppered with fun illustrations and delightful patterns at the start of each chapter.

I’d definitely recommend this book to children, as well as any adults who enjoy a light hearted mystery. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next

An adorable middle-grade detective story. The three main characters - Zaiba, Poppy and Ali - are all wildly different and intelligent in their own ways that combine to create an interesting team dynamic. The highlighted multicultural family is a great addition, as well as the overly pure enjoyment of supporting your family with their dreams. The actual mystery was simple but entertaining, following the same beats of the usual detective story - just with the additions of curfews!
