From Allen & Unwin: When a dead body is discovered at the Museum, Beatrice May Ross is determined to use her sleuthing skills to solve the case. Sharp, sassy YA crime-fiction, with a dash of romance and a splash of funny.
Bee is in her element working in the taxidermy department at the Museum of Natural History, but her summer job turns out to be full of surprises:
A dead body in the Red Rotunda. A mysterious Museum benefactor. A large stuffed tiger in the Catacombs. A handsome boy with a fascination for unusual animal mating habits.
And a pocketful of glass eyes.
Can Bee sift through the clues to discover whether her mentor really committed suicide ... or is there a murderer in their midst?
To be published by Allen & Unwin in May 2011
Not only is the cover absolutely gorgeous, but I'm a big fan of Lili's writing and A Pocketful of Eyes has something Veronica Mars-ish about it, which is a big plus in my book - can't wait to read it!
