2010 book 68

Alan Bradley's The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag
The sequel to the awesome Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie brings us back to Flavis de Luce, child prodigy and poisoner, as she gets involved in a mystery dealing with a dead child, marijuana, and puppets. I will say that the mystery isn't really that interesting or even really a major part of the story, but I enjoyed reading it anyway--the de Luce family is completely entertaining. B+.
