The Justice Jones series is exactly the sort of book I would have devoured as a child and it is no different as an adult! The fourth book in the series is set at the outbreak of World War Two, a perfect time to read about a group of schoolgirls coming to terms with this tumultuous period in their lives. The title gives a hint as to what Justice and her fellow Barnowls will be investigating and there are plenty of clues (and red herrings) thrown in to aid the reader in trying to figure out what is happening.
The addition of a boys’ school adds an extra dimension to the plot and it was fun reading how the different girls reacted to the sudden appearance of members of the opposite sex in their school.
As in the previous books, the plot is incredibly readable with great characters and a delightful setting. I’m already looking forward to reading book 5.
I have to say that I love the Justice books.
This book starts on the day that war is declared with Germany, 3rd Sept 1939.
I love the language and cadence it flings you straight back to the era.
This story sees the school take in a boys school which has been evacuated.
Everyone is feeling the effect from the war effort, from the girls having to do the cleaning duties, to the school growing their own veggies and raising hens and pigs, to running out of cocoa powder, blackout curtains and violations, and carrying gas masks.
Justice’s mystery is war related and very close to home, as her dad goes missing. It’s a spy related mystery.
I think that this is my favourite of the Justice stories. I’m looking forward to the next one.
