Just finished The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie which was all kinds of fun. Starring precocious 11 year old chemist and mystery-solver Flavia de Luce, and set in 1950 Britian, its a mix of very well written young adult novel, old-school British mystery with some stiff-upper-lip comedy stylings. I enjoyed the hell out of it. If Athryn has not already read this series, I would consider this a very Athryn-philic book. Highly recommended.
