I love this book! It’s like if the Series of Unfortunate Events meet Little Women, it would be this book!!!!! It has action, mystery, chaos, and just a hint of murder all wrapped up in a marvelous read!!!

This book is about 7 girls living together is a boarding school who have a scandalous idea… When their headmistress drops dead during dinner, they bury the body, hide the evidence and plan on living by themselves with no rules! That is until they find out she was murdered… Now it is up to 7 girls to find the murderer without getting caught.

This book was hilarious. It totally deserves my Golden Llama award and I very much suggest this novel to girls 12 and up looking for a fun read! This book was action and mystery, friendship and problem solving. And it is very clean.

Now there is some violence and dark topics. Mention of graves, dead bodies, murder, poison and such. One of the girls is obsessed with dead people, (which is hilarious) and she tends to be a bit of a darker soul than the rest of the crowd. And there is some mention of one of the girls acting scandalous with a few boys. Nothing happens, just mention of standing close and kissing.

Overall, this novel is amazing! Read it and love it, because it is fabulous! I think girls 12 and up would love this book, and I hope you all have a beautiful day!!! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A really funny, totally awesome novel!
  • Humorous, interesting and such a good read!


  • Violence and mention of murder…
  • Some scandalous moments!

There’s a murderer on the loose – but that doesn’t stop the girls of St. Etheldreda’s from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce.

The students of St. Etheldreda’s School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home – unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbors that nothing is wrong.

Julie Berry’s The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place is a smart, hilarious Victorian romp, full of outrageous plot twists, mistaken identities, and mysterious happenings.
