    I received a free ecopy from the author in exchange for an honest review.Don t think that just because Amanda Lester is descended from Inspector G Lestrade that she s interested in going into the family business She wants to be a filmmaker, not a detective, although admittedly her film club isn t really coming together since her control freak tendencies are driving members away Amanda s life changes dramatically don t give her any choice and suddenly enroll her in a boarding school for the desce [...]

    This is one of the best Middle Grade and mystery books I ve read in a while I don t read a lot of Middle Grade books, but this one immediately captured my attention with the beautiful cover and interesting blurb And I am so glad I won a copy of this book in a giveaway Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar mystery is about a girl named Amanda, who wants to be a filmmaker, but her parents want her to be a detective as they are descendants of Lestrade and they sent her to a school to become a detective [...]

    Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar Conspiracy features the hijinks of Amanda Lester, an avid filmmaker who s been enrolled in a secret school for the descendants of famous detectives Still, Amanda s having none of it until some very strange things start to happen and she and her new friends get caught up in figuring it all out.I thought this was a lovely story Set in the UK at a private school, a secret one, it was reminiscent of Harry Potter, but instead of focusing on magic, it focuses on detect [...]

    I received the book for free through First Reads in exchange for my review Thank you.Four stars for a tween book, but really not a bad read for an adult who enjoys YA fiction Regardless of Berinstein s admitted admiration for Rowling, this book does not try to be Hogwarts ian I, Amanda Lester, solemnly promise not to reveal the existence of the Legatum Continuatum School to anyone outside the school and my immediate family If I do so, whether purposely or inadvertently, I may be expelled, impris [...]

    Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar Conspiracy is a smashing Holmesian debut from Paula Berinstein The book involves a plucky young girl by the name of Amanda Lester who is a descendant of Inspector G Lestrade, the Scotland Yard friend of Sherlock Holmes Despite her rich ancestry, Amanda wants nothing to do with Inspector Lestrade nor with the world s first consulting detective She would rather be a film student than work on solving a mystery Poor Amanda is out of luck as her parents who don t unde [...]

    Excellent mystery for preteens and young adult readers I love reading these books written for our youth which is somewhat expected since I am an 8th grade English teacher It is so much better when the book is well written and this one definitely is There are no lags in the storyline, and the mystery is set up so that readers can try to work out the mystery as things evolve Anybody who is a lover of mystery books and books for our younger generation should try this one Although it is a somewhat l [...]

    Despite his name, Cricket Martini Curls was a tea man He despised how fellow members of the criminal aristocracy assumed he could be appeased with one of those vermouth concoctions Fools One would think that the magnificent Martini Henry rifles which had conquered half the world would have made a lasting impression Two cups of Tetley s, leaves couriered from the most underhanded tea shop in Edinburgh , soothed his temper sufficiently that chief henchman Simcoe Alehops dared to approach his decom [...]

    For someone who is a descendant of the ever famous Inspector G Lestrade, a colleague of Sherlock Holmes, Amanda is not very happy about it In fact, she is already fed up since that s what all her parents want to talk about All she hears about everyday are either stories about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Inspector G Lestrade or anything related to detective works and she s already sick of it Can t her parents understand that she doesn t want to do anything with it, and directing movies [...]

    There s something about this book that draws me in and I can t quite put my finger on it.Perhaps it was the concept It was the concept that made me interested in this book before I even read the description This isn t a school for fairy tale characters, which seems to be a popular theme at the moment No, it is a school for the descendants of famous detectives, and this is a very different theme than fairy tale characters I enjoyed reading about the way that the school functioned, as well as abou [...]

    The first paragraph already made me an Amanda Lester fan I have a soft spot for Sherlock Holmes always have had , and the idea that one of Detective Lestrade s a police detective who had close ties with Mr Holmes descendants would be a girl, who wants nothing to do with her ancestry had me smiling right away Especially when she calls Sherlock Holmes Mr La di da boring detective, whoop de doo Another huge bonus is the added information at the front of the book There are maps, floor plans, a gloss [...]

    Kristine (The Writer"s Inkwell)
    Review was originally posted onThe Writer s InkwellAs a child, I never really got into the whole detective thing I was into horror, so I ve never really read any of the classic detective stories I say this with a sense of irony, seeing as I own a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories and have never even cracked open the book.Going into this series, I wasn t sure what to expect I m clearly out of the age range for the book and it s a genre I rarely explore, unless you count the Alex Cross series [...]

    Amanda Lester and The Pink Sugar Conspiracy is the first book in the series It is directed towards middle schoolers but I have to say that I loved reading it and I am an adult sometimes LOL The cover is striking, that is what caught my attention but when I opened it and began reading I didn t want to stop I loved reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries as a middle schooler but would have loved to have had the chance to read this series too Harry Potter also came to mind while reading but wit [...]

    Not long ago, I received and read an ARC of the paperback version of this book and thought it was extremely creative and well written, which didn t surprise me, having long been a fan of Paula Berinstein s podcast, The Writing Show When I saw Allan Corduner provided the narration for the audio book, I had to give it a listen Corduner is a masterful narrator and voice actor, and had narrated The Book Thief and served as the voice of Snape in the Harry Potter audiobooks.The audiobook did not disap [...]
