    Super cute The plot is or less a game of clue, but MG like, with a large cast of funny, resourceful, and charismatic young girls Much like its cover, The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place is intriguing and fun with a touch of humour We begin by being introduced to the girls with the help of some illustrations and a quick look into why they were sent to St Etheldreda s School for Girls I had the ARC so the illustrations were sadly missing, but the cover accomplished the same and it was [...]

    An absolutely delightful Victorian farce in which a group of Victorian schoolgirls attempt to conceal the death of their awful schoolmistress and live in a sisterly utopia and must therefore deal with the nosy neighbors, angry creditors, hopeful suitors, and suspected murderers who descend on them Laugh out loud funny as well as tender, it made me wish my nickname was Smooth Kitty

    Dark, witty, ominous, twisted, and absolutely hilarious This was most definitely giving me Agatha Christie meets Arsenic and Old Lace vibes and I loved every moment of it I do have to say that this was tad slow and there were romantic bits that didn t feel necessary to me, but what made up for that was that this was an amazingly entertaining read I fell in love all 7 of these viciously twisted girls and was sad that this came to an end This is also a murder mystery and I thought that part of the [...]

    Dear Julie Berry Thank you for writing this book Thank you for writing such a fun and sassy story about girl friendship and mystery Thank you for making all the girls actual friends, despite their differences And thank you for writing such a romp of a tale I loved every word of this book.

    Initial Thoughts The girls at The St Etheldreda s School for Girls find themselves in the unlikely position of being on their own after the poisoning of their headmistress and her brother The story is both charming and amusing and written in the style of the historical period The girls work together to solve the murders and while I kept thinking of Scooby Doo in my head, they did work out the details rather nicely I found myself chuckling at some of the situations The Review The Scandalous Siste [...]

    THE SCANDALOUS SISTERHOOD is a good read I just don t think it ll be particularly successful with it s target audience.The first thing that irritated me was the face that there s an adjective in front of each girl s name, every time their name is mentioned in the narrative It gets old after just a short amount of time, and it s really the only way you can differentiate the girls I never ended up remembering whose name belonged to who, I just remembered them by their adjective If you re going to [...]

    Eine skurrile Krimi Kom die mit viel schwarzem Humor Genauso ist es, denn diese Geschichte hat so viel Witz und einen so bezwingenden Charme, dass man gar nicht mehr zum Lesen aufh ren kann Zu Beginn bekommt man schon die Hauptdarstellerinnen auf eine sehr eigent mliche Weise vorgestellt Roberta Liebenswert PratleyMary Jane Ungeniert MarshallMartha Einf ltig BoyleAlice Robust BrooksKitty Schlau HeatonLouise Pockennarbig DudleyElinor D ster SieverDiese Beinamen behalten sie auch w hrend der Gesch [...]

    I loved this book It was delightful, from beginning to end I was searching for how to classify it, and in the afterward, Ms Berry mentioned the term, British Farce And that s what this is I am all for Girl Power, and this book is very much about girl power and the bond between girls women Not only is this a sisterhood bonding story, it s also a bit like Oceans Eleven, one of those caper type stories where you have a disparate group of individuals who are thrown together under a common bond I d c [...]

    This quaint novel tells a story of a British boarding school in the end of the 19th century But saying that and only that would be a gross simplification The story is also a murder mystery and a farce, a historical and a study in character interactions One day, seven teenage girls, the students of St Etheldred s School for Young Ladies, witness their schoolmistress and her brother keel dead during their weekly Sunday dinner Why did they die simultaneously Were they murdered Why, how, and by whom [...]

    Shades of Annie s Adventures and The Mysterious HowlingRidiculous and fun A group of boarders at a Victorian finishing school conspire to hide the bodies when their headmistress and her brother drop dead suddenly It s a romp They solve the mystery and all the girls who are old enough meet proper beaux, and everyone who is still alive in the end lives happily ever after.There are a few moments when the silly plot and the seriousness of death rub uncomfortably against each other, but mostly it s j [...]

    When first asks to describe this week s book, I said, It s a Victorian Don t Tell Mom the Babysitter s Dead murder mystery For kids That seemed to do the trick For those of you unfamiliar with that awesome 90 s guilty pleasure movie, the story goes like this Kids are left with an irascible guardian while their parents are away Guardian dies Kids attempt to fool the world into thinking Guardian is still alive so they can be on their own In Julie Berry s The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Pl [...]

    3.5 stars Arc provided by Mcmillan s Children Publishing Group through NetgalleyRelease Date September 23 rd A very important fact that readers should know before starting reading this book The story is told as a complete farce I mean.terally speaking somehow that little bit, escaped me completely while requesting this story I blame it on the pretty cover So, if like me, you re used to only having bits of it thrown in once in awhile, you re due for a different readingAlsoa very important questi [...]

    Now, I hope no one takes this the wrong way, but I really enjoy a good murder mystery Just keep the words in that order and don t remove the mystery, and I think we ll all be good I grew up on Sherlock Holmes, a little bit of Alfred Hitchcock s mystery anthologies here and there, and Agatha Christie adaptations, particularly Poirot and the beloved Miss Marple some better than others Do not get me started on the particular series that features Miss Marple as a patient, innocent bystander, replete [...]

    I just couldn t finish this book, I was so bored and disappointed It looked nice and gothic and dark, just like I like it, and it was on a whim that I picked it up that day at the library I guess either I m a book snob or the children s books of today just don t seem up to par with my standards I think they re too light, or too easy, or don t have enough character depth, or theme relating to the human condition One might argue that they re not supposed to And that s fine Except I go to the young [...]

    I found this book scandalously delightful and unlike anything out there today for middle school girls I m actually not sure that girls in the 10 14 age range would find it quite as funny as I did, but I do think that they could easily get caught up in the mystery The use of the adjectives as part of every girl s name throughout the story Stout Alice, Disgraceful Mary Jane, etc was hilarious, and it really helped you keep track of who was who in a book chock full of characters Not only did you ha [...]

    Anfangs bisschen schwer, die vielen M dels auseinanderzuhalten die Sache mit den Adjektiven machts nicht unbedingt einfacher und die Geschichte kommt erst mit der Zeit so richtig in Schwung Dennoch eine sehr unterhalsame lustige Lekt re, welche gleichzeitig auch ein kleiner feiner Krimi ist.

    I thought this book was super fun Mysterious deaths, secret fortunes in doubloons, girls in disguise what can you want from a boarding school book

    For reviews, gifs, Cover Snark and , visit A Reader of Fictions.The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place was the sort of middle grade novel I simply had to read Mostly because I snicker every time I read the word prickwillow because I m a very mature, grown up sort of person Not to mention the fact that historical novels are fabulous and scandalous girls are generally pretty fun Who wants non scandalous heroines If I want to read about boring girls who make boring choices, I could write a [...]

    I m a fan of Julie Berry, but I wasn t much a fan of this book It took me 150 pages to get into it that s like the first half of the book x_x and during those 150 pages I debated dropping it but I m glad I pushed through because the last half of the book was great The synopsis and the title was what intrigued me The headmistress and her brother drop dead during dinner and these 7 young girls are determined to maintain their freedom No one wants to go home, and this is their chance to finally be [...]

    St Ethelreda s is a very small school for young ladies held in Mrs Plackett s house There are only seven students all of whom would much rather be with the querulous headmistress than with their own dysfunctional families When Mrs Plackett and her brother, Mr Godding, drop dead after eating veal, the girls, especially Smooth Kitty all of the girls have adjectives attached to their names, like Dour Elinor and Disgraceful Mary Jane , decide that the best plan of action is to bury both of the adult [...]

    So maybe this is of a 4 star than a 5 star bookbut I will be honest, I had so much FUN listening to it that I don t even care This book seriously exceeded expectation When their headmistress and her odious brother are suddenly poisoned, the students of St Etheldreda s School for Girls have a decision to make Do they alert the police and return to their respective homes, or carry on as if nothing happened They opt to bury the bodies Unfortunately, hiding murder is not easy, especially when the m [...]

    At a school for girls, on a Sunday night during dinner, the headmistress and her brother drop dead after taking a few bites of a delicious veal The girls at the school having no love for the poor souls came up with a shameless plan to hide the deaths and go on with their lives at the school Unfortunately for them things didn t work out as planned including the possibility of the murderer returning for its next victim.There is not one thing I disliked about this book But instead of long paragraph [...]

    2.5This book took awhile to get started for me I wasn t sure what I thought of all the girls having their defining trait tacked onto their name the whole time but I did find it a useful device to help remember who was who, so there s that.It was interesting to watch the girls interact together, and it was nice that there weren t any typical mean girl tropes or anything They all had different personalities and didn t always approve of each other, but they also got along in their way.The mystery i [...]

    4.5 starsNearly perfect.This delightful Victorian mystery involves seven schoolgirls who upon the sudden and unexpected death of their headmistress and her repugnant brother decide to cover up the deaths and live on in blissful solidarity without any interference from their families, thus free to live their lives as they choose.The girls embark on this plan of action without reckoning for the nosy neighbors, officious investigators, questionable domestic help and, of course, the murderer.It is d [...]

    I loved, loved this book It is exactly my kind of story The girls brilliant and clearly well thought out plan, the steadily rising absurdity, the light black humor, and especially the epithets The book was hilarious and I laughed throughout, but it was also surprisingly thoughtful, with characters who have depth even while being caricatures, and with insights into life, love, and proper behavior that don t in the least weigh down the rollicking story A perfect gift for that band of rambunctious [...]

    actual rating 3.5 stars I love books about a gang of girls doing just about anything I love the theme of sisterhood And I do love this one It s just so painfullymple Am I wrong to think that MG readers couldn t handle complexity and dirt to this mystery Maybe, but I don t think so That being said this was good writing and I will miss the sisterhood.

    What a delightful book The characters are funny, interesting, and well developed the story was well thought out and the ending was quite satisfying.I recommend this to anyone, not just the reading audience it is categorized for.
