Mini Review: Case of the Missing Moonstone

Lady Ada Byron commands the household as the only person of rank, with her mother off visiting and her father dead. She's not thrilled about a new tutor. But when the new tutor brings along a student, she has somewhat of a change of heart.

When she meets Mary Godwin, she finds her first friend. Together, the girls even each other out. They start coming up with schemes - one of them is to start a detective agency, which they do.

Lady Ada is quite particular about which case they choose, but once she hears about the missing moonstone, she can't wait to solve it.
The Good:
Lady Ada and her inventions
Lady Ada ruling the house
Lady Ada and her interactions with Mary
The strength and determination of Lady Ada and Mary
Charles, the invisible boy who reads
Lady Ada discovering the truth about her tutor
Victorian Era
All the STEM in the book
The Ladies Detective Agency
Solving the case
The references to other elements in the story
The chase
That ending!

The Bad:
Nitpicking here, but historical impossible to happen with the difference in ages between the two.

Cover Thoughts: Fantastic
Source: My Library
Library Recommendation: Highly recommended for all Children's Collections
Final Thoughts: I'm looking forward to the second book in this series!
