Choose Your Own Adventure!

You are a precocious child in a complicated world filled with scheming relatives & heirs to fortune & smitten suitors & gold-digging wives & husky tutors & cast-out sons & amateur sleuths. Your life is centered within a vast country manor dominated by your dread grandfather, who sits like a senescent spider in the center of his enormous web, a web whose tangles he created but no longer bothers to repair. Then murder strikes and grandfather is no more! What is a young girl to do? How long will your little flame burn in such a bleak and venomous environment? Never fear, tiny dancer, you are wise beyond your years... but what path shall you choose?

If you decide that adulthood is overrated and you need to start hanging around with people your own age – in the swingin’ 60s! – choose

If you decide to grow up quickly but nervously – in the swingin’ 60s! – find a roommate, and just learn to relax, choose

Kelly H. (Maybedog) I'm commenting only because every single one of these reviews of yours deserves a comment.
