The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luce, #1)The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A fun mystery that introduces an incredibly memorable sleuth. In England in 1950, 11-year-old Flavia de Luce is fascinated by chemistry as she grows up in a big old house with her two sisters and reserved father. One day, she finds a body in the yard and is determined to find the killer. Flavia is smart and intrepid and still youthful, with a bit of a wicked streak. The book is fun and smart and fast-paced, and with its setting and smart characters reminiscent of Agatha Christie.

kaz and I both read and enjoyed this, too. Flavia's mind is fun to follow as it runs far, far ahead of her common sense.
