Title: The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
Author: Claire Legrand
Release Date: August 28th 2012
Victoria hates nonsense. There is no need for it when your life is perfect. The only smudge on her pristine life is her best friend Lawrence. He is a disaster—lazy and dreamy, shirt always untucked, obsessed with his silly piano. Victoria often wonders why she ever bothered being his friend. (Lawrence does, too.)
But then Lawrence goes missing. And he’s not the only one. Victoria soon discovers that Mrs. Cavendish’s children’s home is not what it appears to be. Kids go in but come out . . . different, or they don’t come out at all.
If anyone can sort this out, it’s Victoria, even if it means getting a little messy.
This book is totally up my ally, I love prim and proper heroines paired with mystery! Also, the illustrations for this book already look absolutely gorgeous, I know I’ll fall in love with its design once I see it in real life.
