Overview *Contains Spoilers*

This is a definite must read for readers who enjoy Enid Blyton’s adventure-packed Famous Five and Secret Seven books! It was packed with action and mystery which kept me hooked for more. I love the main character, Laura. She is a brave and strong-headed girl who isn’t afraid to ask questions or express her feelings. She is a role model for a lot of female readers, and males can also admire her feistiness and bravery.

I really enjoyed Lauren St John’s White Giraffe series, so I was excited to start reading this one and it didn’t disappoint! I found I actually preferred this book because of the adventure and mystery that surrounded Dead Man’s Cove. I would definitely recommend this book to Junior Fiction readers but enjoyment can also be found by Young Adult readers who are looking for a lighter read.
