(I hadn't heard of this book before it arrived and it seems to be a second in a series...any one read the first one or heard anything about these?)
My name is P.K. Pinkerton and I am a Private Eye operating out of Virginia City. At the moment I am in Jail in the shadow of a hangman's noose. It is all because I tried to solve the biggest mystery here in Nevada Territory and protect a girl who witnessed a terrible crime. If I write an account of what happened, then maybe I can convince the jury not to hang me by the neck until I am dead.
(Even though this cover is awful, I really enjoyed Sparks and thought I ought to give this a try)
Jennifer Van Der Berg would like you to know that the book ostensibly written about her—Born to Be Extraordinary by Eileen Codlin—is a bunch of bunk. Yes, she had a fairy godparent mess with her life, but no, she was not made into a princess or given the gift of self-confidence, and she sure as hell didn't get a hot boyfriend out of it. Here's the REAL scoop . . .
Alice in Wonderland/Alicia en el Pais de las Maravillas - Lewis Carroll
(No better way to practice reading a language, than with a great book.)
That's what I got this week, What did you all get?
