"Gemma shuddered from head to toe. She's scared of my mum. I used to be scared of my mum too, until I started scaring her back."
Precocious Sophie Margaret Catriona Seade (pronounced "seed") insists on being called Sesame and is one unabashed, sassy, impudent 11-year-old. And she's hilarious. Her mom is the Head of Christ's College at Cambridge University and her dad is the college Chaplain. She's completely confident running amok on campus, talking back outrageously, and generally being as disobedient and independent as possible.
She's also quite smart, so when something suspicious occurs with one of the students, she takes it upon herself to investigate. Between Sesame's brains and brazenness, she makes a surprisingly effective detective, "interfering" parents and all. Though something serious really is amiss, Sesame's style is so breezy and funny it's easy to forget the weight of the crime and simply get caught up in the entertainment. This book is gleefully fun.
