Everything you need to understand or teach A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro.
A Study in Charlotte, by Brittany Cavallaro, is the first novel in a promised series starring Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes. Jamie and Charlotte are the great-great-grandchildren of the famous literary duo, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Set in a world where the literary men actually existed, Jamie and Charlotte are thrown together by their families in a Connecticut boarding school. The novel details an actual mystery against a typical teen backdrop of devotion, family issues, loneliness, and self-discovery. The characters' famous relations allow room for the author to also explore broader themes of intellect and legacy. The result is an entertaining reboot that pays homage to one of the most popular characters in literature (Sherlock Holmes) and his loyal best friend (Watson).
