New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson weaves a delicate tale of murder and mystery in the first book of a striking new series, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and E. Lockhart. Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. "A place," he said, "where learning is a game." Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym "Truly, Devious." It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history. True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder.  The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.

The murder mystery was fun and I liked the way the book was written. However, I didn't like the main character that much. It felt like the author was forcing in all these quirks and 'not like other girls' things just to add representation. Maybe she wrote the characters out of genuine care but it was just a bit much for me. I get it's suppose to be a school for special people but the whole atmosphere and her parents not understanding her made it feel too "YA".
Also did not care for the romance, insulting is not flirting! "He said something mean, that hurt" Next scene, "Ooh he's cute, lets kiss!" I knew from the beginning that he was the romance, maybe I just don't like enemies to lovers, but maybe it's because it wasn't the main focus of the book, so it seemed a bit rushed or not flushed out (I guess that's what the other books are for?).
I did have fun with the story but probably not continuing the series. ( )

A fast paced read that held my attention and made me want to get to the end. Luckily I knew this was the first part of a series so the multiple cliffhangers at the end didn't really come as a surprise. ( )

Loved this mystery. Loved the characters and the many mysterious twists and turns. I wish I could read the next book right now! ( )

Stevie gets to attend the famous Ellingham Academy, where the original founder’s daughter and wife along with a student disappeared in 1936. Stevie, who wants to work for the FBI when she grows up, is convinced she’s going to solve the case. But when she steps onto campus and things start to go weird, she’s thrown into a completely different case. Along the way, she has to figure out who dun-it. This book was fast pace and the story kept moving and kept my attention. I was trying to figure out who did it and my guess ended up being one of the two suspects. Usually, I’m not a fan of mysteries but this was a great book. I’m excited for the three others in the series. Great YA Mystery to get lost in. ( )
