The Pearl Thief
Julie is back from Code Name Verity except this is a prequel and it was so cool to see a younger her and have a mystery to boot. Julie has returned early from boarding school where packing and renovations are underway. After the death of her grandfather the estate has been sold to pay the debts. On her first day back however, before her family even knows she has arrived she is hit on the head and is unconscious for 3 days. During that time she first stays with a Traveler family who then take her to the hospital. Not only that but another man has gone missing as well. In the midst of all the mystery Julie makes some new friends and learns more about herself.
This was really good - tension, mystery, exploration. It is definitely too mature for my kiddos but a worthwhile read.
