Alice Miranda at School, by Jacqueline Harvey

I would recommend Alice Miranda to anybody who likes a mix of school and mystery. It is a gripping story and is extremely awesome. When Alice Miranda Highton-Smith Kennington Jones arrives at her new boarding school, Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies, she realises that something is wrong. Miss Smith is sad because she has never seen her family, the gardener is angry because there aren’t any flowers and Jacinta is having a tantrum because she is not allowed to go to the gymnastics championships. Alice Miranda is challenged with a series of impossible tests. Can she beat the school’s champion at sailing? Is she brave enough to camp on her own in the forest? Will she get full marks in an academic test? Could do you pass these tests?

I would rate this book 4/5 because it hooks you in but also does not give too much away at the beginning.
