A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel



Book #3 was "A Girl Named Zippy". It is about growing up in a VERY small town (Mooreland, IN) I thought it had some really good parts and parts that were really funny...however, it was really choppy and hard to "get into". The author did write a sequel, called "She Got Up Off The Couch: And Other Heroic Tales From Mooreland, IN". I might go back and give the sequel a try but for now I am moving on to my next book.

This book is called "Justice Hall" by Laurie King. This is the 6th book in a series about a woman named Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. These books take place after Sherlock Holmes has been retired for a good number of years. The beginning of the series takes place when Mary is 15. I found these books delightful. The author kept Sherlock Holmes like the one we would recognize from the Original books. But I found these more entertaining than the books by Sir Author Conan Doyle.
