Angie Kelly "Labyrinth Society: The Versailles Vendetta"

Angie Kelly

" Labyrinth Society: The Versailles Vendetta"



When 12 year-old Mia Cornell is sent to live at the Tarpley Estate, her ninth foster home, she has no idea what she's in for. Having a kind but mysterious foster mother and three quirky foster sisters is all well and good. Discovering that her new family is a secret society—they use a portal in their garden labyrinth to travel the globe seeking lost art, artifacts, and OSOs (objects of supernatural origin)—is something else entirely.
Mia barely has time to wrap her head around the truth when the Society's latest job, tracking down Marie Antoinette's necklace, goes sideways. Mia and her new siblings—Tomi, the historian; Devon, the hacker; and Lily, the muscle—must use their wits, plus a few cool OSOs filched from the Society's vault, to stay a step ahead of a sinister enemy from their foster mother's past. But just how far back does Mrs. Tarpley's past go? And will Mia stand by her new family or cut and run when they need her the most?

"I'm Mia Cornell, and until a month ago, I didn't believe in supernatural stuff. I mean, seriously, how could any sane person believe in ghosts? I'd lived my entire life blissfully ignorant about this whole unseen world out there I knew nothing about. And, honestly, I'm still trying to decide if I'm happy to know the truth, even though the truth is pretty awesome. Well, mostly awesome. It can also be kinda scary sometimes. Anyway, I bet you're wondering what happened to change my mind. It all started after I'd been bounced around in foster care for a year and then got sent to live here at the Tarpley Estate with Madeline Tarpley and her three other foster daughters: Tomi, Devon, and Lily. Three of the craziest girls I've ever met."

"What did you just call us?" interrupts Devon, rolling her eyes.

"You're one to talk, Mia," says Tomi, laughing.

"And you're one of us now," Lily says. "So you're crazy, too." We all laugh.

"As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, the first week I was here I tried to run away because of all the total weirdness going on around me. Plus, I knew they were keeping a secret from me. And I won't even mention how mean Devon was." I stick my tongue out at Devon and she throws a pillow at me.

"But instead of running away, I ran straight into an adventure and it completely changed my life forever. Oh, and I'll never look at the Mona Lisa the same way again, or nuns, or Vespa scooters!"

"Okay, it's my turn," Tomi says, plunking herself down on the coffee table. "I can't believe Mia just called us crazy. Adventurous? Yes. Gutsy? Totally! Nerdy? Just a little. And, yep, I guess we're crazy, too, but in a good way. Oops! I bet you're wondering who I am? I'm Tomi Sato and I actually hate labels, especially the not so great one ones. They're so bad for your self-esteem. But I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I wanted to tell Mia the truth about us. It was killing me not to. Keeping secrets suck! Or is it sucks? Either way, it was no fun having to lie to her when she knew something was going on.
