Lexie London is a confident, cheeky girl who has recently moved from England to Melbourne. Lexie sometimes feels as if she's moved to another planet, especially when she has to say "thongs" instead of "flip-flops". One day, the librarian at Magpie Creek Primary lets Lexie's class in on a huge secret...Many years ago, when visiting this school, the Queen of England lost her personal diary - and now she wants 5MF to find it! Detective Lexie is determined to get to the bottom of it all. The reward? A trip to England to personally return the diary to the Queen herself. No one is going to stop Lexie - not Jeffrey Minton, not Rachel Snoot, and especially not the evil principal Miss Broom. With the help of her friends, Lexie embarks on an epic and colourful adventure. Spooky cupboards, creepy attics, missing paintings and bizarre banana skin trails are just some of the cryptic clues. Will Lexie London crack the case and find the missing diary?

She loves writing children's stories but also loves reading, travelling, singing and eating apple crumble (actually, that's probably her favourite thing). Sue lives in Melbourne with her family, BJ, Aimee and Liam. They have a fluffy cat called Mittens.
