May 2015 Book of the Month There’s a real vogue for girl detectives at the moment, but Ruby Redfort is far and away the smartest, and Lauren Child’s books easily the most stylishly written. This is Ruby’s third outing, and the thirteen-year old undercover agent is on a survival mission in the wilderness. She’s done all her homework, of course, but coping with nature calls for more than just knowing the facts: Ruby must learn to follow her instincts too. A sophisticated, sassy adventure that invites readers to work out the plot puzzles alongside Ruby, this is perfect for bright young readers. There’s no-one quite like Ruby – as she would say, “You better believe it, Buster!” ~ Andrea Reece
The third book in the ice-cool Ruby Redfort series, by multi-million-copy bestselling author Lauren Child.

Things are going to get wild - and Ruby is going to get badly lost in the wilderness. The question is: will she ever make it out alive? Well, as always, you wouldn't want to bet against her...
