IN­TER­EST­ING STUFF

What spe­cial skills do you have?

I’m pretty ob­ser­vant and I have a good mem­ory — those two things are re­ally im­por­tant and I’ve re­cently found out that I’m a lot fit­ter and more ag­ile than I thought.

You’re awe­some at read­ing maps. When did you re­alise you had such a cool skill?

I was about four. We were trav­el­ling in Amer­ica and I asked Mum if I could have a look at the map. I handed the map back and I could tell them ev­ery town that was com­ing up and how far away it was. They were all pretty sur­prised and I think I was too.

What’s the most in­ter­est­ing crime you’ve solved with your twin sis­ter Kensy?

I can’t give that one away — you’ll have to read the book to find out but let’s just say it was sur­pris­ing and although my sis­ter frequently jumps to crazy con­clu­sions this time her in­stincts were spot on.

What’s some­thing you’re good at and Kensy isn’t and vice versa?

That’s easy. Map read­ing. Kensy is OK but she can’t re­mem­ber things the same way I can. She loves pulling ma­chines apart but I’m not as keen to do that.

De­scribe your twin Kensy in five words.

Smart, messy, im­pul­sive, kind, com­pet­i­tive

What are your favourite sub­jects at school and why?

I’m a bit of an all-rounder. There isn’t much I don’t like about school but I sup­pose maths would be my favourite sub­ject although English and PE come a close sec­ond.

If you had to pick a spy cos­tume for un­der­cover work, what would it be?

You can’t go past a tuxedo but only if you’re at a re­ally classy event. But it’s not very prac­ti­cal for day-to-day wear so I’d prob­a­bly go for jeans and a jumper with an over­coat to hide things I might need — the same sort of clothes lots of peo­ple wear so I can blend into the crowd.
