The Nancys by R.W.R. McDonald

Judges’ notes: A murder mystery featuring Tippy Chan, the 11 year old is narrator. Her Uncle Pike and his boyfriend Devon come to take care of her while her mother is on a holiday. Tippy’s friend Todd has an accident and her teacher is gruesomely murdered. Tippy, Uncle Pike and Devon start a detective club inspired by Nancy Drew and call themselves The Nancys and attempt to solve the mystery. This novel features lots of laugh out loud moments, and captures the sense of small town prejudice while featuring larger than life characters.
