Enola Holmes Series:
Told from the perspective of the youngest of three siblings - Mycroft and one Sherlock Holmes being the elder brothers- Enola wakes on her birthday to discover her mother has disappeared. Worse, when her brothers arrive to investigate, they decide to send Enola to boarding school so she can become a "proper" English lady.
There are more books in the Enola Holmes series, which offer up separate mysteries in addition to Enola's quest to understand her complicated family.
Filled with clues, action, and an energetic protagonist, the pacing moves quickly and leaves you wanting to reach for the next installment. Some danger and some complex vocabulary make this a good title for upper elementary and middle school readers.
"Legally, at age fourteen I did not yet exist. So who on Earth did I think I was - Enola Ivy Holmes Meshle Mrs. Ragostin - to attempt the monstrous hoax that was my life?"
