Description

For fans of The Mysterious Benedict Society and The Blackthorn Key series comes an award-winning boarding school mystery about twelve year old Emmy, who's shipped off to a prestigious British school. But her new home is hiding a secret society ... and it may be the answer to Emmy's questions about her missing father.

With a dad who disappeared years ago and a mother who's a bit too busy to parent, Emmy is shipped off to Wellsworth, a prestigious boarding school in England, where she's sure she won't fit in.

But then she finds a box of mysterious medallions in the attic of her home with a note reading: These belonged to your father.

When she arrives at school, she finds the strange symbols from the medallions etched into walls and books, which leads Emmy and her new friends, Jack and Lola, to Wellsworth's secret society: The Order of Black Hollow Lane.

Emmy can't help but think that the society had something to do with her dad's disappearance, and that there may be more than just dark secrets in the halls of Wellsworth...

          November 1, 2018
          Grades 4-6 When Emmy's mother, a parenting expert, branches out from writing books to hosting a reality TV series, she ships her 12-year-old daughter off to Wellsworth, a challenging English boarding school. Resigned but resentful, particularly after her mother tells her not to play soccer, Emmy finds that she enjoys the challenging schoolwork. And despite rejection by her shrewish roommate, she quickly makes two good friends. She also discovers that her father, who mysteriously disappeared when she was three, had attended the school. While attempting to learn more about him, Emmy discovers a centuries-old secret society and makes some dangerous enemies. A Canadian writer, Nobel creates a number of engaging characters, as well as several suspicious ones, and sets the story in motion, building tension and surprising readers from time to time as the plot twists unexpectedly and individuals reveal themselves more fully. Written in third person from Emmy's point of view, the narrative moves quickly toward a satisfying conclusion, but some mysteries remain unsolved. A promising first novel that leaves the door open for sequels.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
