Teen Corner; BY AMY SMITH, AGE13.

The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow Katherine Woodfine The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow is a delightful, nostalgic mystery with tones of Enid Blyton, set in a 1910s London department store.

When the priceless Clockwork Sparrow goes missing, and a shop boy is shot, 14-year-old Sophie is the prime suspect.

She and new friend Lillian Rose set out to clear her name.

I am interested by Sophie's back story and am sure that there will be more to her father's death than meets the eye.

I felt the plot lagged in places but Woodfine's writing is interesting enough to keep you reading and the conclusion was both nail-biting and completely unexpected.

I would recommend this to fans of Robin Stevens and look forward to the second book in the series.
