Dear Flavia

"I have this weird patch of skin on my tummy I've been needing the answer to.  Also, there is a really annoying teacher at my kids school that I'd love to "poison" with the birthday cupcakes I send in.  Not only are you charming and rascally all at the same time, but your love and affection for you highly dysfunctional family cannot be hidden by your attempts at ambivalence.  Your keen intellect and startling grasp of chemistry makes me wanna name my bike and ride her all over town.  Please be my new BFFF (best friend from fiction)?

Love, Memzy"

I'm off to Shed's grammy's 80th birthday party.  But I just wanted to chime in here real quick like.  I loved this book.  I cannot believe the author is a 60+ year old male!  I've already read the next two Flavia de Luce mystery novels with gusto.  I even named a recent necklace purchase my "Flavia" necklace.

Are you gize gonna do this or what?
