Pero ya sabemos que por aquella época por mucho prestigio que hubiera… todo era bastante tétrico, además las condiciones son bastante pésimas y las compañeras, no todas, dejan mucho que desear. Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF. Helena was there in a dark tunnel in the night because she was meeting the French teacher, who she was in love with. Indeed, we first meet Justice on her way to Highbury House Boarding School for the Daughters of Gentlefolk, which is set on the Romney Marshes. Justice is always on the look-out for a mystery and Highbury House seems to have lots that need investigating.

Justice isn’t at all surprised when someone else dies, although she’s puzzled that it’s her No 1 suspect. She has also written several standalone novels, including The Stranger Diaries and The Postscript Murders. Mainly about the murder, but perhaps she can figure out her new nemesis – the angelic Rose – at the same time. At just under 200 pages, the Justice Jones series is perfect for readers of 8+ who are building their independent reading stamina.The intention at first is to keep the two groups entirely separate, but then sports brings them together. Justice isn't sure who she can trust, but she will have to confide in someone to solve the case and save lives. However, the reason that I didn`t adore this as much as I`d hoped to was that the pacing of the mystery felt really rushed to me- it didn`t get properly into the investigation until roughly halfway through and at one point it felt like someone was dying every few pages as a result. I felt it missed so much and could have been so much better, it needs to stand out more and be it's own and not feel like a bland history following a basic recipe.

As Justice digs for clues, subtly probes witnesses and is guided by logic she soon uncovers more than she was prepared for and must rely on her wits to solve a mystery and simultaneously stay out of trouble The novel is written from the perspective of Justice and her character comes across vividly. I was also a huge fan of the boarding school setting as it felt very reminiscent of Malory Towers and St Clare`s, if a tad less jolly hockey sticks, and the creepy atmosphere was well done. The world of Highbury House is beautifully portrayed, from the disgusting school meals, to the entertaining cast of teachers and pupils and the atmospheric construction of the school ghost legend; all add greatly to the entertaining plot. There's a bit of Enid Blyton, a bit of St Trinians, a simple mystery where the young protagonist is smarter than the adults. The plot is well constructed, the clues not too easy and there is a satisfyingly gathering momentum to the book which makes it a real page-turner.Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway novels take for their inspiration Elly's husband, who gave up a city job to train as an archaeologist, and her aunt who lives on the Norfolk coast and who filled her niece's head with the myths and legends of that area.

Herbert Jones also knows the head mistress of the school, Miss Delores de Vere, a friendship Justice is still trying to figure out, so there’s a ready connection for Herbert to keep apprised of how Justice is doing. Samtidig må den unge pige indstille sig på, at denne nye verden, kan være et farligt sted at navigere i når man er en ung pige med nye venner i en helt ny og ukendt verden. Sin duda os recomiendo esta lectura, la hemos leído mi hijo y yo y la verdad es que nos ha encantado acompañar a Justina que a sus doce años con una inteligencia, ingenio, curiosidad sin igual nos ha hecho pasar muy buenos momentos y nos ha hecho pensar mucho.Elly Griffiths is one of my favourite authors of adult fiction, but she really shows her versatility with this middle-grade book (now a series) about schoolgirl detective Justice Jones. Justice Jones is a sure bet for tween readers who enjoy a good mystery solved by a clever and plucky young lady. Serien er beregnet til børn i 10-12-årsalderen, men jeg vil mene, at børn og barnlige sjæle langt ud over denne alder vil kunne få glæde af denne nye serie. Con mucho diálogo y pocas descripciones hace que la novela se lea de una manera muy amena para los más jóvenes.

This is a charming book, led by its wonderful protagonist (if you like Flavia de Luce, you’ll love Justice).Justice is convinced that one of the teachers at the school is involved in the smuggling operation and sets out to find the evidence to prove it. Justice is a list maker, and as she explores the mystery surrounding the maid's death, she keeps a journal of clues and suspects and observations.
