Ripped! A back-in-time, Jack the RIpper, YA Novel

10 Apr

This diverting novel hurls a modern teenage girl back to Jack the Ripper’s London, desperate to save his victims from their gruesome deaths, while falling in love with Cockney Toby and noticing how JK Rowling’s Diagon Alley was inspired by London’s Diagonal Alley…yes – all of those things at once. So while the tone is a bit uneven, the characters are fun, and the many, many references to the differences in the lives of a 21st C teen girl, and that of her Victorian counterpart, are informative. A good book for a historically minded, mystery loving 14 year old…
