ALA Booklist
Far from his London home, Jamie Watson is still adjusting to his Connecticut boarding school, Sherrington, when he meets Charlotte Holmes, the great-great-granddaughter of the famed detective. Is it pure coincidence, or is something else afoot? When one of their fellow students is murdered, Watson is drawn into the peculiarly compelling and idiosyncratic Holmes' orbit. The two work together to clear their names, all the while fearing for their very lives. Fans of television's Elementary and Sherlock will avidly devour this book, which draws heavily from Arthur Conan Doyle's source material, though newcomers to Doyle's work may struggle to keep up with Charlotte's impressively quick thinking. Less a mystery for readers to solve, Cavallaro's debut, yet another reimagining of the iconic detecting duo, is more of a joyous excuse to watch one of the literary world's most beloved pairings come together. Readers will delight in the romantic friction between Holmes and Watson, particularly when it comes to their long-awaited union. A smart adaptation with an already built-in fan base.
Horn Book
Connecticut boarding-school students Charlotte Holmes and James Watson, descendants of Sherlock and Dr. Watson, are framed for a murder that's staged with clues straight out of their ancestors' "Speckled Band" case. The teens navigate their own muddled relationship while racing to find the real killer. Complex characters and a dark, twisty-turny plot (involving drugs, rape, revenge, and Moriartys) make for an above-average Holmes-Watson reboot.

The first book in a witty, suspenseful new series about a brilliant new crime-solving duo: the teen descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This clever page-turner will appeal to fans of Maureen Johnson and Ally Carter.

Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices—and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends.

But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.
