About the Book



The second book in the hilariously clever mystery series starring Friday Barnes, genius girl detective!



Book Synopsis



"A must-have series for middle-grade readers." --Booklist

Friday Barnes, girl detective, is... under arrest?!

Getting arrested was the last thing Friday expected after solving the swamp-yeti mystery at her boarding school. But she better clear her name fast! She's got new cases to investigate, like a scandalous quiche bake-off, a decades old mystery buried in her school's backyard, and why the new boy, Christopher, is being so nice to her.

More adventures and intrigue ensue in Under Suspicion: A Friday Barnes Mystery, the second book in the illustrated Friday Barnes mystery series, starring a genius detective with the brains (and social skills) of Sherlock Holmes.

Don't miss any of the Friday Barnes books! Start the adventure all over again with Girl Detective: A Friday Barnes Mystery or continue on with Book Three, No Rules: A Friday Barnes Mystery by R. A. Spratt and illustrated by Phil Gosier.

"[For] readers who like humor but also want more intelligent characters and jokes, as well as those who like quirky mysteries." --Booklist

"This second book in the Friday Barnes series is even funnier and quirkier than its predecessor." --School Library Journal
