    8. I couldn t put this down I was definitely pulled into the story right from the start The twists and turns, family and friend dynamics and little details added layers to a story already brimming with excitement, sleuthing and excellent writing Some of my questions in regards to the case weren t answered by the end of the story, but otherwise the book exceeded my already high expectations There was a strong cast of main and supporting characters, and Piper really grows as a person in the midst of [...]

    10. The first half of the book was absolutely creepy and epic But then the who did it became less exciting as it wasn t really a mystery any I agree with Lisa when I say that the climax was kind of Nancy Drew ish Not as exciting as I had hoped, but I genuinely liked the MC Piper She wasn t your typical Oh, you can t get the door for me because I m a GIRL Are you implying I m LESSER kind of touchy airhead and was realistically independent Though a bit reckless and naive sometimes, those flaws made h [...]

    13.

    19. You know, at first I was a bit skeptical with this book because I thought it was going to be your typical Nancy Drew novel where she will just so happen to have all these friends that will help her during the mystery But not Piper Piper doesn t know a single person who could assist her when it comes to solving the mystery of Lydia s disappearance Later on, she does begin to allow Detective Cassano to help her but for the rest of it, she s mostly on her own, much to her brother s or Walter s disl [...]

    21. Okay, I finally finished this after having to reborrow it once it expired and despite the fact it took me so long to read I like it very, very much.One thing at a timeThe characters They are quite amazing I liked Piper Sometimes I didn t relate for example, how come she just didn t want her father to remarry Her not liking the step mother to be seems a bit cliche But I admire her for her many other qualities her love for Lydia, her bravery, her determination, her strong will, and that she never [...]

    23. See of my reviews on The YA Kitten My copy was an ARC I got as a reviewer for YA Books Central.Diversity 0 What Diversity Racial Ethnic 0 the only POC is a black woman employed by Lydia s family as a servant and her 1 2 lines of dialogue have a rather stereotypical phonetic accent QUILTBAG 0Disability 0 Lydia has seizures due to an unidentified disease or disorder Intersectionality 0The 1920s was a big, extravagant mess of a time in American history We had the Harlem Renaissance going on and we [...]

    24. 4.5 Stars This was a very good historical mystery romance I ve wanted to read something of Stephanie Morrill s ever since I started following Go Teen Writers, and this one was at my library So I read it, and it was excellent My only bone to pick was that the ending made not so much sense, if you want to PM me I d be than happy to chat with you about it kudos to Morrill for writing a well spun, suspenseful mystery I enjoyed every page of it

    25. Anyone who is in to Historical Fiction will most likely love this book Even as someone who isn t into this specific genre, I could appreciate the time and hard work put into the research and details This book is detailed and written very well I would recommend it to people who like Historical fiction I give three stars because the genre isn t my favorite and I had a hard time getting really into the story However, the mystery and the setting really are great.

    26. I appreciated the brilliant intertwining of emotion, sorrow, and fun, and Mariano was my type of fella Definitely want to re read Full review coming soon
