bookshelves: adult, young-adult

Eleven-year-old Flavia is a pistol of a girl. Set in the England of several years ago, she solves a mystery with nothing more than her inquisitive nature, intelligence and Gladys, the bicycle that is her transportation around the villages and British countryside. She grows on you. A good who-done-it.

Might be good for mature middle-grade readers as well. By the way, Flavia loves chemistry and mixing up poisons... And if you're sensitive to either poison oak or poison ivy, wait'll you see what Flavia tries to do with one of her sister's lipsticks.
