Description
There's a murderer on the loose--but that doesn't stop the girls of St. Etheldreda's from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce. The students of St. Etheldreda's School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home--unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbors that nothing is wrong. Julie Berry's The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place is a smart, hilarious Victorian romp, full of outrageous plot twists, mistaken identities, and mysterious happenings.

      • bioText: Julie Berry has never solved a murder or attended boarding school. Her manners are decidedly improper. But she is part of a scandalous sisterhood. She's the youngest of seven children, six of whom are girls, and if they'd ever had a chance to conceal a corpse and run a school, they'd have jumped on it. Today she lives in eastern Massachusetts with her husband and their four sons and two cats.

      • content: Jayne Entwistle is a wry, spirited narrator, and her scratchy, warm voice is expertly matched to this dark comedy. When their headmistress and her brother die unexpectedly, the students of St. Etheldreda's school must think quickly, keep up appearances, and attempt to solve their murder before anyone is the wiser. The language of this story is almost Victorian, but Entwistle keeps events and characters clear, and her meticulous pacing is well suited to a murder mystery. Despite the gruesome deaths and the ensuing intrigue, Berry's wickedly hilarious group of intelligent, triumphant young women and Entwistle's range of emotions and characterizations make this piece a compelling listen.

        Starred review from July 14, 2014
        Readers with a penchant for dark humor will relish Berry’s (All the Truth That’s in Me) tongue-in-cheek murder mystery set in a late-19th-century British girls’ boarding school. The St. Etheldreda’s School for Young Ladies, run by stern headmistress Constance Plackett, may not be paradise for its residents, but the students get an unanticipated break from their dull routines when Plackett and her odious brother drop dead at the dinner
        table one spring evening, apparently poisoned. Knowing opportunity when they see it, the girls hatch a scheme to dispose of the bodies and run the school on their own. Unfortunately, a killer is on the loose, and the girls could be the next victims. The pupils’ attempts to convince the public that everything is normal at the school make for some hilarious scenes, and their efforts to find the murderer result in surprising encounters with suspicious (but often quite appealing)
        suspects. Romance blooms in unexpected places, and danger lurks around every corner in this delightfully farcical tale, full
        of twists and turns. Ages 10–14. Agent:
