Descripción

With a dad who disappeared years ago and a mother who's a bit too busy to parent, Emmy is shipped off to Wellsworth, a prestigious boarding school in England, where she's sure she won't fit in. But then she finds a box of mysterious medallions in the attic of her home—medallions that belonged to her father…who may have gone to Wellsworth. When she arrives at school, she finds the strange symbols from the medallions etched into walls and books, which leads her and her new friends, Jack and Lola, to Wellsworth's secret society: The Order of Black Hollow Lane. Emmy can't help but think that the society had something to do with her dad's disappearance and that there may be more than just dark secrets in the halls of Wellsworth.

    The Mystery of Black Hollow Lane is a 2020 Lone Star novelBecause her mother's job takes all of her time, Emmy's mother sends her to a prestigious boarding school in England. It has to look good because her mother is a parenting expert even though she spends little time with Emmy yet expects Emmy to be perfect. Emmy works very hard and tries not to upset her mother. She's stunned to be going to England. She's learned not to make friends because she changes schools so much. When she arrives, however, Lola and Jack quickly befriend her while her roommate barely acknowledges her existence and doesn't allow her any room except the bed and her suitcases. Emmy grows to really like the school and finds a place she considers home. There are dangers however. Her father disappeared close to Emmy's third birthday. Before leaving the United States, Emmy receives a strange message that leads her to search for something of her father's. She finds a box with medallions skillfully hidden and decides to take these to England. Emmy learns that her father attended Wellsworth and begins asking questions, which leads to more secret messages and danger to Emmy's life.I enjoyed the novel but was surprised by it because the cover implied a different story; I feel the tone of the story doesn't match the cover. It's a fine cover, but it doesn't work for me. At the end, the publisher includes another clue, indicating a second book will be forthcoming. I very much enjoyed this novel.

    Emmy is unhappy to learn that she's being shipped off to a boarding school in England, but she soon warms to the idea when she realizes her long-missing father also attended this school as a child. And, someone has been mysteriously contacting her with breadcrumbs about her father's legacy...This was a very interesting mystery that kept me in suspense at every turn, which is an especially remarkable feat for a book meant for children! (Often, mysteries written with a child audience in mind are glaringly obvious.) The characters and setting were rich with details and vividly interesting. While definitely being mysterious, this book was also a book about studying, dealing with bullies, fitting in, making friends, etc. so many children will have plenty that they can related to based on their own school experiences. For the audiobook reader, Saskia Maarleveld was wonderful at negotiating a number of accents and a range of ages with the large cast of characters at the boarding school. She was thoroughly engaging, as was the book as a whole.My tiniest of quibbles is that the book is the first in a series so quite a few things are left open-ended at the book's conclusion... and I have to wait until March for the next title to publish!

    My favorite part of the book was when Emmy and her friends were solving Emmys problem.
