A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
When James moves from his new home in London back to Connecticut to attend boarding school on a rugby scholarship, he knows he’s going to have one friend there. After all, Watsons and Holmes have been friends for generations. Even though he’s never met Charlotte Holmes, he’s followed her crime solving career and imagined himself along on all her great adventures. In real life, however, Charlotte turns out to be as stand-offish as her great-ancestor Sherlock. When a boy at their school is murdered, however, Watson and Holmes become prime suspects and best friends in one fell swoop. As they race to discover the truth, clear their names, and try to stay alive, they discover that the true meaning of friendship might be the greatest mystery of them all.
Recommended for fans of mystery, especially Sherlockians, in grades 8 and up.
