Friday Barnes Girl Detective by R A Spratt

Friday Barnes is a lot of fun. She's smart, sensible and slightly socially inept.

Her parents are the stereotypical scientist types - too busy with their experiments to parent their youngest daughter.

Left to her own devices, Friday begins solving local crimes thanks to her amazing observation & deduction skills.

With the money she makes from solving a bank robbery, she sends herself off to Highcrest Academy...which turns out to be a hotbed of minor crimes and mysteries.

Friday solves the case of the missing clock, the disappearing homework and reveals the truth behind the mysterious swamp creature.

Spratt has written a funny, fast-moving detective story for good 10+ readers. She has also left the way open for book #2 Under Suspicion, which is due out January 2015.

Book one - Friday Barnes Girl Detective will be published by Random House Australia in July.


  1. This sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. It does sound fun. I hadn't heard of this one before, but then it hasn't been published yet, so I can forgive myself. You're often ahead of the game Brona.

  3. One of the many advantages of my current job Louise :-)
