Holmes Academy, a special school for children trained in the powers of detail and discrepancy. It is a school for modern day detectives and snoops. A school where on the way to class you get lost in secret passages, have to solve riddles to get through doors, and study poisons and murderous weapons and the art of clue finding.

Angie Hilversum, a strange and straightforward girl with an obsession with snow globes and yellow rain boots is invited to attend the school by personal invitation of Dean Ames. She gets a full scholarship which causes upset on campus, but also curiosity to why this girl was special enough to be invited.

Angie meets several people along the way, including friend Jenna Brevies, a terribly shy girl who dislikes being sent to a school for detectives; Will Porter, an upperclassmen who is the big snoop and gossiper around Holmes Academy; Chaz and Diana Sylvan, two stuck up rich twins who can’t stand Angie because of the so-called favoritism she got from Dean Ames.

Besides classes, fights, and the occasional having detention monitored by a basset hound, a boy dies in his bed and it is summed up as a suicide. Angie is the first on the case, the first to conclude that it couldn’t have been suicide, but that there was a murder in Holmes Academy.

The way I see it, if you want to see the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

It's amazing! It reminds me of a book I read sometime back it's called Killing November by Adriana Mather. If you haven't read that book you should 100% read it I think you'll love that book!! It might also help you with your writing! There are two parts to that book the first part is Killing November and the second part is Hunting November. I think there is a part three coming out soon. Fingers crossed!!

I love this.  Good plot, nice POV changes, and something I would definately buy at a store.  Your story inspired me to continue with an idea of mine, similar to yours(but not the same, so don't worrry)

What're you waiting for? post more!
