Children's Week: Review: Verity Sparks, Lost and Found (Verity Sparks #2)

We're celebrating Children's Week with a series of reviews, articles and interviews by or with kids! To see all our Children's Week posts, click here.

Have you read Verity Sparks? Are you ready for some new mysteries to be solved? Then let’s embark on this new adventure with multiple mysteries to be solved! 

Verity has now found her dad, who is now nagging her to go to an exclusive boarding ladies college. When she arrives, a very rude girl, without even asking permission to come into Verity’s room, comes in and digs out all Verity’s treasured things.

Little does she know that this head girl will make a stealing mystery that needs to be solved! These are not all the mysteries that SP and Verity need to have a look at.

I would give this book a 5 star rating, and if you like solving mystery cases, this is the perfect book for you!!
