EJ12 Girl Hero: True Light by Susannah McFarlane
Published by Scholastic Australia
Emma Jacks is 12 and lives in Australia with her Mum and Dad.
She is also Agent EJ12 for the Shine Agency along with her mum and beloved Farmor (her Swedish grandma). However, since the recent death of her Farmor, Emma is really sad. Then a message alert comes through from Shine saying the evil agency Shadow has made a laboratory in the Arctic Circle and they plan to make copies of every currency in the world.
Shine Agency has to stop them – but no one can find the laboratory. They need EJ12 on the case.
At the Shine operations room A1 asks EJ12 to remember her first mission to the Arctic Circle. EJ12 remembers the visit to her Farmor and Swedish family for Christmas when she received a message alert from Shine. The reindeer in the Arctic Circle were all dying and she and her mother had to find out why. Remembering that helps her get over her grief for her Farmor and it unlocks the key to the Shadow problem.
Does EJ12 stop Shadows evil plan?
I really enjoyed this book, I don’t often read mysteries but I like books with strong girl characters who can do lots of things and be heros. I would like to read others in the EJ12 girl hero series. I recommend True Light for girls aged 7-12 especially if you like mystery, adventure and girls that save the day.
