The Case of the Missing Marquess

Hi I'm back I just kinda forgot about about blogging for a while. I loved this book a lot. My mom read this to us its the 1st book in the Enola Holmes series. Its about a young girl named Enola Holmes. It takes place in England (Victorian times). On her birthday her mom went missing and gave her a little book of ciphers.  One of her brothers (Sherlock Holmes)is investigating her moms mystery . Also her other brother Mycroft (who has been appointed Enola's guardian) and Sherlock don't think Enola is lady like so they trying to send Enola to boarding school where they wore corsets. There is also a mystery about a marquess a young one at that who has gone missing, So when the carriage came to pick Enola up for boarding school she took her bike and hid it and jumped on and rode away. Will she be able to find the Marquess, figure out what happened to her mom, and solve the little book of ciphers her mom left?
