Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

I just loved precocious 11 year old Flavia and the quirky characters that populated her world. It was fun to ride along with her on Gladys as she went from one clue to the next determined to find answers while her sisters sat at home reading or mooning over boys. This book had a great sense of time (just after WWII) and place (England.) It was a light mystery with some scary parts (for Flavia) as well as some amusing parts. I would reccomend it!

Quote: "Unless some sweetness at the bottom lie, who cares for all the crinkling of the pie?"
