The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Okay, I thought this book was great.  The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie evidently won a literary award based on only the first few pages.  Luckily, it seems to have maintained a consistency of quality.  Reading it gave me a funny familiar feeling, which I finally realized was the feeling I used to get reading my beloved Nancy Drew mysteries.  Bless Alan Bradley for that.

Product Details

The protagonist of The Sweetness is a slightly sweet, somewhat sinister, and utterly compelling eleven-year-old girl.  I found myself praying for a sequel before I’d even got halfway through.  I read this book in a single sitting and wished there had been more.  If you enjoy mysteries at all, you’ll most likely enjoy this – and heck, maybe even if you don’t.
