From Debra's list on mystery and action for young readers.
Enola Holmes, sister of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, is inventive, creative, curious, and adept—despite what her much older brothers Sherlock and Mycroft think about her. The story has suspense and twists and turns all the way, especially when Enola solves the case of the Missing Marquess, and ultimately, the disappearance of her own mother. Nancy Springer has included some well-researched and written historical information about the London environment of Sherlock, and she expertly creates a setting that is hard to ignore. It also shows the resilience of a determined young woman. I recommend this book, as both a history buff and a historical fiction reader and writer.
