About the Author

Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in Oxford, England, across the road from the house where Alice of Alice in Wonderland lived. Robin has been making up stories all her life. She spent her teenage years at boarding school, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she’d get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn’t). She studied crime fiction in college and then worked in children’s publishing. Robin now lives in London with her pet bearded dragon, Watson.

Grade: B+ The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: This is the type of middle grade I very much enjoy. Spunky protagonists who solve murders - in historical fiction! Poison is Not Polite is set a few months after the events of Murder is Bad Manners, and it takes place over less than a week (I think). The plot moved at a good pace, and the story never dragged on. Daisy seemed a better-formed character this time around; she was still bursting with personality, but she was a little less impulsive and abrasive. I do wish Hazel would get a little more character development since she is the narrator. I loved trying to guess who the murderer was (and my first and second guesses were wrong, y'all). Ms. Stevens doesn't make it super obvious - and there are a lot of suspects - but the murderer also wasn't a humongous plot twist that didn't make sense. I would've liked a little more sense of setting, but I don't think younger readers would mind as much since Poison is Not Polite is rich with plot and characters. The Verdict: The only thing missing was that extra spark to make this a 5-star read, but it is a new favorite. Definitely a series worth checking out!
