2012 book 275

Alan Bradley's Speaking from Among the Bones
This is seriously one of my favorite mystery series--somehow, I have no problems believe that a 12-year-old girl with a knack for chemistry can solve her 1950s English village murders . . . and yet I constantly wonder just how a small English village HAS so many murders. No matter, Flavia is awesome! The fifth book in the series involves the un-tombing of a long-dead saint and a newly dead church organist--and plenty of plucky girl sleuthing. And surprisingly, it ends on a kind of big cliffhanger that has me more than eager to read the next one. A/A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in January.
