Quotes & Awards

  • “This smart and witty first book…vividly recreates the social and economic milieu of 1826 England through the girls’ eyes…They use quick thinking, book smarts, and social know-how to find a stolen gemstone…Comical narration and dialogue will charm readers thoroughly.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “History meets mystery in this story in which the author reimagines the lives of Ada Byron and Mary Shelley as two girls who meet in 1826 London, agree to form a secret detective agency, and embark upon a series of adventures together…While the author admits to taking a few liberties with historical facts, there are plenty of historical and scientific tidbits that may inspire readers to investigate the real-life figures as well as their discoveries and creations evolve. A good fit for Common Core curricula and a fun overall read, this is a winner.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Young readers unencumbered by the knowledge that the setup is laughably ahistorical …will probably warm to Mary’s steady intelligence. They will certainly relish Ada’s many eccentricities, especially the hot air balloon she keeps tethered to her roof.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Nicola Barber tells the story with a flair and liveliness that add realism to this little time-travel jaunt. Her British pronunciations of some words may sound odd to the American ear, but she ably breathes life into this interesting cast of characters…A great start to a promising new series.”
