Nancy Springer is a two-time Edgar Award-winning author. Her mysteries incude the popular Enola Holmes series.

She lives in Florida.From Booklist:
Gr. 6-8. Aaron and Jeremy are neighbors and best friends. After spending the afternoon together, Aaron is murdered, brutally stabbed over and over. Earlier, Aaron confessed to Jeremy that he wasn't getting along with his brother, Nathan. Later, Nathan becomes the prime suspect, is convicted of murdering Aaron, and is sent to jail. As time passes and things quiet down, however, Jeremy becomes convinced that Nathan isn't guilty. He thinks that his own bad-tempered sister, Jamy, is responsible, but he can't bring himself to tell anyone about his suspicions. Springer leaves the ending open, a decision that can pave the way for discussion about morality and family loyalty. More character development would have made the story richer, but the fast pace and suspense are enough to keep most readers, especially reluctant ones, engaged. Ed Sullivan
