A mysterious figure gazing from a window, strange voices on the telephone, and a missing priceless artifact mix together to unite four students of St. Veronica’s School for Girls – known for their brilliant red blazers – in a challenge of wits. Toss in Charles Dickens, creepy caretakers, and a woman yearning for the daughter she hasn't seen in years, and you've got a case for these young sleuths to solve. When Sophie, Margaret, and Rebecca meet eccentric Ms. Harriman, they agree to untangle the clues in a mysterious scavenger hunt set up decades before. Little did these Red Blazer Girls know that not only their wits, but their friendships would be challenged as well! This is the first in new series featuring 7th grade detectives in school uniforms!  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
