Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
The first sequel to the highly exciting and enjoyable Mysterious Benedict Society. Like the first book, this one combines high adventure with a nice sense of friendship and appreciation for family and relatives (biological or adopted). I enjoyed it, despite realizing just how ridiculous the cover issue is. [May 2010]
