Ok people ..... listen up if you're reading this ... Read this series!
There is nothing better than an 11 year old detective/chemist who solves mysteries .
She is not cowed by death, probably only interested in the bugs on the body. This book is on my list to read, but any in this series would be a good start. You will laugh at her tart replies to really dumb adult questions (and really dumb adults!) Flavia de Luce will amaze you. -- Enjoy!
