Recommended for: Grades 5-7

Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells are best friends and students at a British boarding school in the 1930s. They love reading mysteries and dream of becoming detectives themselves. When Hazel finds a dead body in the school gym, their dream comes true. But as their hunt for the murderer continues, Hazel is not sure she has what it takes to solve deadly mysteries or put up with her bossy friend Daisy. This is a cozy British mystery that also touches upon feelings of being an outsider (Hazel comes to the school from Hong Kong and deals with a certain amount of racism from her schoolmates) and the complexity of friendship. I couldn’t put it down both because I wanted to see “whodunnit,” and I wanted to see how Hazel would stand up to Daisy. Hopefully, more Wells & Wong mysteries will be coming soon!
