Just as good as the other three in the series, if not better It does take a bit of a darker tone than the first three, so watch out if you are reading to really young children who enjoyed the first 3. I think it is good especially because it teaches you a lot about friendship I like it how it has got their dorm mates in it Very gripping. Gosh this series is so much fun Daisy and Hazel are getting older and they re facing new tests of their friendship as well as the threat of a murderer In book 4 the big girls are causing problems bit then the head girl is murdered Who did it And where are all the mysterious pieces of paper with secrets on coming from I love this series it is the perfect mix of Enid Blyton esque boarding school stories and Agatha Christie style crime And although it s set in the 1930s, the cast of characters is diverse than the Blyton equivalents and poses questions about how people are treated and people s attitudes to those who are different But all this is done in a fun and readable way I don t want you to go away thinking that this is a preachy book, because it s not it s massively good fun Spoiler alert I rate this book 5 stars because all these books are absolutely amazing I like it when they make you suspect someone who didn t commit the crime On this one, though, they got it wrong Beanie was super brave and put her life in danger and nearly got killed It was a little third former Martha Grey who saved them Then daisy lied about the case to inspector Priestley and said that they suspected the murderer but they didn t Martha then told inspector Priestley that they suspected the person who got framed for it Binny was kidnapped by Una but she was justreally trying to keep her safe You see, secrets about the girls were being spread and Binny was doing it Una was keeping her safe from the murderer in an old dusty tunnel under the stairs that is always locked, Una was giving Binny food, drink and a blanket to sleep on.
