    Story
    "I grew up on Sherlock Holmes"
    If you could sum up The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline in three words, what would they be?

    Clever, fun, and intellegent


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It is always satisfying when at the end of a mystery of any ilk the detective sums up 'how it were done' so to speak. The Enola Character is wonderfully like her famous older brother, yet like the Wicked series this is a fun look at things from another perspective. Very believable and with the right 'feel'. She lets you in on 'how it were done' with the same deductive reasoning we associate with Sherlock. Throw in the family drama and it all comes together as a fast and fun read.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read many of the titles in this series and they are all good. Sort of a Jane Eyre meets murder on the orient express. It avoids the kind of silly kid behavior of characters written for younger audiences that I have sometimes seen. Also it paints a historically accurate picture of the London of the day. Definitely a story written for the teen and tween audience but written with intelligence.
