    The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it’s the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city - gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific work of Jack the Ripper in the autumn of 1888. Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect.

    Melissa says: "London"
    "Not your normal Ripper story."

    What did you love best about The Name of the Star?

    Overall story was very good, nothing specific stood out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rory. Because she is smart, and couragous, and she won't let anyone tell her what to do.


    Have you listened to any of Nicola Barber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when the ripper and rory are in the abandoned tude station.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though this is a YA book, i found the story entertaining and compelling. This book kept me guessing and the suprise ending was amazing. I look forward to Maureen Johnson's next book involving the Shades.
