The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - Alan Bradley A terrific book with my new favorite character: Flavia de Luce. She is an 11-year-old who is an amateur chemist/detective with an amazing voice. Example: "When I backpedaled,the Sturmey-Archer three-speed hub on Gladys's rear wheel gave off a noise, like a den of enraged, venom-dripping rattlesnakes. I pretended they were right there behind me, striking at my heels. It was glorious!"I only hope there are girls out there in this world who are still looking for adventure and not worried about boys yet! Childhood is so short and Flavia is living it to the fullest! Not only is the book filled with wonderful characters; the story is great, too! I can't wait for the next Flavia de Luce mystery!
