Alan C. Bradley

The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag

Summary: 
Flavia de Luce does it again!! The very smart 11 year old, chemistry wizz, with a penchant for poisons, solves 2 murders. She thinks that her days of crime-solving in Bishop’s Lacey are over—until a puppeteer Rupert Porson gets electricuted during a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk!! This for me was a much more enjoyable book than the first, though I enjoyed that immensely. The plot was almost secondary to the main character of Flavia. She is a treat!
