It’s been three months since 13-year-old Edie solved the case of her mother’s death and became a supersleuth. Now, her reputation is spreading far and wide – everyone wants her help to solve mysteries …
Why does Edie’s neighbour’s long-lost friend suddenly keep turning up wherever she goes? How can students fail an exam when they know their answers were correct? What led to the vicious attack on an elderly woman on Hampstead Heath? And – most alarming of all – should Edie’s schoolfriend be worried about his stepfather’s new activist friends?
To solve each mystery, Edie must harness the Three Principles, a new approach to understanding how the mind works that is currently proving invaluable in improving mental health and well-being in children internationally.
As tensions across the city reach fever pitch, can Edie follow the clues and coach her own mind to avert a potential catastrophe?
