The Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer
Enola Holmes' mother has vanished so she calls her two older brothers, Mycroft and Sherlock for help. But they think help is turning her into a proper lady and sending her off to boarding school. Her feminist-thinking mother would be appalled. So Enola does the only thing she can do, runs away from home and solves her own problems. (Grades 4 - 6)
