really liked it
bookshelves: 2012, supernatural, boarding-school

I don't really have anything specific to say about this book. I just have a warning. They talk a lot about the actual Jack the Ripper murders and mention several times how the fifth was the only to be photographed. DO NOT look up the photos. It is so disturbing and horrible. I wish I hadn't. Just don't do it.

Katherine Eek! I think I watched a part of some PBS special on Jack the Ripper years ago and it was pretty bad.

Kathy I'll take your word for it...I will not be doing that!

Amee Tell me what you think about the book, Kathy! I miss talking books with you! :)

Kathy I know!! We miss you too!! I will let you know what I think about the book when I'm done, it's pretty good so far. :)

Kathy Yeah I like it a lot. Callam and Alistair were my favorite characters. Julianne too!
