Academy Watson s Case is an MG Mystery, and a sequel to Sherlock Academy Book 1Plot 5 5It s an middle grade book, so don t expect extremely dark themes or extremely deep character development The plot, though a mystery, is in fact very age appropriate, doing a great job of keeping the stakes high, but also interjecting great lighthearted moments One of the strongest aspects of the book, however, is Farah s great pacing WARNING STORY COMPOSITION TALK INCOMING The stories main plot points fall almost exactly on the 25%, 50%, and 75% marks, and seems organic, and not too rush nor too slow Such was the case with book 1 as well It makes it very comfortable to read, and Character 4 5If the book has any short comings, it s with character, and in particular, the main character Rollie is just not very deep His main focus is solving every mystery around him in sincere earnest But, for any age appropriate boy or older , Rolly being an empty vessel lends to the reader taking on Rollie s shoes And despite the MC s lack of depth, the other side characters actually shine, starting off appearing one sided, but reveal to benuanced then Rollie, and you grow to care a lot for Rollie s family and classmates and teachers.Setting 5 5SA WC is set in an England where Sherlock Holmes, rather than being fiction, was, not only a real person, but also a well known public figure It reads authentic, but then I am not the biggest anglophile The epinymous school itself is fantastic and clever, even if the course of study itself is not terribly practical But then, neither was it that practical in Harry Potter, which is the obvious comparison that must be drawn.Conclusion 5 5Harry Potter meets Sherlock Holmes, Farah Shaw s Sherlock Academy 2 Watson s Case is a well written Middle Grade book, with fantastic pacing and a colorful cast of characters Fun for all ages This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Absolutely loved the latest

right where the first book left off, so it was nice to jump right in, but the author also wrote little reminders into the prose for the first few chapters to help readers who may not remember

of Rollie s roommates and he s a bit of a character, always concerned about the rules and making sure to follow them Then there s Ruperthe s always missing with no one sure of just where he goes or what he does.The plot of this one is really well written It s a sequel to Sherlock Academy, but the way the author has written it, I completely understood everything that was going on and had happened without reading the first book I m sure reading the first book would be enjoyable too, but you ll be okay without There were surprises around every corner in this book, I almost didn t have it figured out by the end, but with Cecily s help, I knew just who the culprit was.Make sure to check out this great book, especially if you have kids in your life that will enjoy this great series I really enjoyed reading this book I read it to my 10, 7, and 12 year olds and they enjoyed it too I suggest reading the first Sherlock Academy and then read this I didn t, but still enjoyed Watson s case

who the culprit was, which made me want to keep reading My 10 year old, who doesn t like to read, kept asking me to just read onechapter because he wanted to know what happened next I think this book would be good for ages 6 11 It s a great book to introduce your children to mysteries I haven t read the first book yet, but felt like there was enough of the backstory explained that I didn t feel lost Yes, by reading the second book first I know some of the first book s spoilers, but I still want to go back and read about their first year at the Academy The characters are that engaging and the overall construction of the story is very good I, too, liken it to Harry Potter in that it is an invite only school for special students I also like the Sherlockian theme My only cri I haven t read

special students who might actually talk like that, kind of like mini Cumberbatches Overall, this is a series that I want to read and will recommend to my students Rollie and his friend, Cecily, are presented with another mystery, a secret map hidden in a newspaper and a spy lurking within the Academy There are many clues and mysterious things happening, but which details are actually pointing to the spy and which are the red herrings I loved everything about this book The characters, the plot, the mystery, the action, the school, the writing style everything is wonderful Rollie is an

really identified with his thought process and his emotions and excitement in the middle of a mystery.I loved the easy friendship between Rollie and Cecily They are great friends, and it really shows in their banter and camaraderie I loved how they nickname each other Holmes and Watson Their friendship is even further cemented in this second book in the series.It was really interesting to see how Rollie begins to connect withof the side characters in this book He has a misunderstanding with one of his roommates, Rupert, and is convinced that because Rupert is a nasty rude person, he must be working as a spy for the bad guys Rollie learns not to let his personal feelings get in the way of finding actual evidence This was such a great exploration of different types of relationships and how we can easily misjudge people.The writing style is excellent, drawing the reader into the story The plot leaves little foreshadowing clues all over the place for the reader to wonder over until the
