For Kit and me, at sixteen
The first time I met her was at the tail end of one of those endless weekday nights you could only have at a school like Sherringford.
"I was maybe the only person to ever have his imaginary friend made real. Not entirely real, not yet - she was still dream-blurred to me. But we'd run through London's sewers together, hand in muddy hand. We'd hidden in a cave in Alsace-Lorraine for weeks because the Stasi were after us for stealing government secrets. In my fevered imagination, she hid them in a microchip in one small barrette. It held back her blond hair; that's what I'd pictured her with, back then.
Truth be told, I liked that blurriness. That line where reality and fiction jutted up against each other."
"When I caught her taking twenty minutes to eat a single almond, I began wondering if there was some kind of Wastonian guide for the care and keeping of Holmes."
At best, our friendship made me feel as thought I was a part of something larger, something grander; that, with her, I'd been given access to a world whose unseen currents ran parallel to ours. But at our friendship's worst, I wasn't sure I was her friend at all. Maybe some human echo chamber or a conductor for her brilliant light.

The first book in a witty, suspenseful new trilogy about a brilliant new crime-solving duo: the teen descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This clever page-turner will appeal to fans of Maureen Johnson and Ally Carter.
Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices—and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends.
But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other. [retrieved 9/9/17 from Amazon.com.]
