Publisher Comments:

A spoiled, rebellious London girl takes on the stuffy English countryside in Clubbing.

The crime: Getting caught with a fake I.D. at a posh London nightclub. The punishment: Spending the summer at her Grandparents' stuffy country club. But Charlotte "Lottie" Brook, best known for her mile-high platforms, an expendable wi-fi account and an unbridled passion for classic lit, will end up doing more than just serving time in country boot camp. In between avoiding the strange locals and cake decorating contests, Lottie will narrowly escape romance and end up solving a murder mystery on the 19th hole of her Grandparents' golf course.

Review:

"British charm radiates from every panel of this graphic novel. Teenage Charlotte is a beautiful rich kid who gets everything she wants, but a poor Photoshop job on a fake ID gets her busted when she tries to get into a nightclub. Her punishment is to spend the summer in the country with her grandparents at the country club they run ('It's like a crummy idea for a reality show that might be funny if it weren't actually starring me'). Geraldine, one of her grandfather's employees, tells Charlotte that there is a dark secret at the heart of her family; a few days later, Geraldine is found dead in a water trap on the golf course. Due to ritualistic aspects of the murder, suspicion first falls on a pack of neighborhood 'goth' teens, but Charlotte begins to suspect her grandfather may be guilty of a crime of passion. While Charlotte juggles a blossoming romance with the drudgery of running the country club's pro shop, a bona fide mystery begins to emerge — and the payoff, which involves human sacrifice, a secret coven and odd astrological symbols, is both satisfying and humorous. While the target audience for the Minx imprint is girls, most boys will also find this fun. Ages 10-up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
