The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a nutshell: thoroughly modern Famous Five style adventure full of humour and excitement

Five children (no dog), members of the Misfits Club, come across some suspicious activity and even stolen treasure in a derelict old house. They start to investigate and find themselves up against a wicked, if not very competent criminal gang. It’s the kind of adventure that regularly exercises the Famous Five, but Kieran Crowley fills it with humour as well as excitement, and a very modern sensibility. The five children - Brian, twins Sam and Chris, Hannah and Amelia - are all proper characters and there’s lots about friendship and discovering truths about yourselves as well as chasing villains. A thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable adventure with some laugh-out-loud moments. Misfits rule! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Misfits Club by Kieran Crowley

When Brian, Hannah, and twins Chris and Sam start their summer holidays, they know it's going to be the end of an era. The Misfits Club is disbanding and they still haven't managed to solve any real mysteries. But when they persuade new club member, Amelia, to go and investigate a spooky old house, they unexpectedly discover some stolen goods. Could this be The Misfits' chance for one last adventure as they try to track down the crooks behind the theft ...?

A funny, warm-hearted mystery adventure from Kieran Crowley, author of The Mighty Dynamo.
