A pocketful of eyes by Lili Wilkinson

eyesA delightful teen read with brilliant characters and a great story. Our heroine has loved detective stories from a young age- and when her summer job at the Natural History Museum is interrupted by the sudden death of her mentor, she smells something fishy. Determined not to be distracted by the geeky love-interest; her cape-wearing, dungeons and dragons-playing mother (and her new boyfriend) or the sinister Head of Conservators, Bee tries to get to the bottom of things.

Beautifully written with a sparky teen lead, a very sensitive handling of the issue of suicide and an absolutely wonderful relationship between Bee and her mother, this is a life-affirming book. You’ll read it in one sitting.
