Publisher's Summary

Meet Ruby Redfort: every smart kid's smart kid. The fifth title in the nail-biting series created by award-winning author Lauren Child.

Ruby Redfort: undercover agent, code cracker and 13-year-old genius - you can count on her when you're between a rock and a hard place.

There's a lot to lose sleep over in Twinford: there's the snakes and the bivalves, but they aren't half as poisonous as the rumours. With so many twists and turns, it's hard to know who to trust, particularly when no one trusts you. Will Ruby make it out in one piece? Well, happy endings are for fairy tales, bozo.

The imagined voice of RR herself

Rachael Stirling has outdone herself with this book. Her speech adds a finishing touch to each of the characters, bringing them to life. Her voice ignites doubt, fear, excitement and joy in your head as you listen to the struggles of Ruby Redfort, as she fights to be trusted. Lauren Child has written this book so wickedly beautiful that you could pick your poison, at the hands of the book, or the audiobook.
