2014 book 18

Diana Wynne Jones' Black Maria
After that last book, I wanted to read something lighter and also wanted to read Diana Wynne Jones--but I think I've read all her GOOD books and am down to the dregs. This one involves a trip to visit an aunt in a mysterious and sinister town. It was weirdly sexist, for Jones, and the protagonist isn't really very proactive. There are some good cats but otherwise I was really not into this one. B/B-.
