Friday Barnes Undercover by R.A Spratt is an action-packed comical detective novel of around 250 pages. Friday has been in Italy for a school trip when the brother of her friend, Melanie calls with a problem. As a detective, of course Friday has to try her best to solve the case. When the mystery leads to a remote island in the Arctic Circle called Svalbard, more chaos arises. I really enjoyed the suspense during the two painting thefts. My favourite scene was the royal ball because there was a kerfuffle trying to get Friday to wear a ball gown.
