The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow

by Jennifer Haight and Stephanie Robinson

Fans of the classic detective/spy story and Little Brown’s THE SECRET SERIES will adore this highly-illustrated debut adventure featuring three young sleuths!

Eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow is less than thrilled that her family is moving thousands of miles from civilization to the quiet country town of Ashpot, CT, where she’s absolutely certain she’ll die of boredom. As if leaving Manhattan and her best friend Lizzy, the only other member of the elite Detective Mystery Squad (DMS), wasn’t bad enough, Fairday is stuck living in the infamous Begonia House, a creepy old Victorian “fixer-upper” with ugly drapes, a mysterious past, and a creaky, vine-covered iron gate that reads “fear not the unexpected.” Before she can even unpack, strange music coming from behind a padlocked door leads Fairday up a spiral staircase and into a secret room, where an ancient mirror, a brass key, and a strange picture of a red-haired lady are the first in a series of clues that takes the members of the Detective Mystery Squad on an amazing adventure and reveals secrets about the Begonia House that they never imagined. Can the DMS piece together the puzzle before it’s too late? Or will whatever’s causing trouble find Fairday and her friends first?
