Witerborne Home for Vengeance and Valor; Ally Carter

Winterborne Home for Vengeance and ValorWinterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor by Ally Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There's a lot of love at my school for the Mysterious Benedict Society books, and this will fit right into that love. Starting with April, and her conviction that her mother was coming back for her, and moving through Violet, Tim, Sadie and Colin to Uncle Evert (among others) there is someone for everyone. How these orphans, shunted through the system, overcome their natural distancing behaviors and become a team will thrill them. And Sadie's Rube Goldbergian inventions are delightful. The only thing that could have made this even better for me would have been greater description of Winterborne House. Oh wait - hearing that this is the start of a series (and seriously, with that ending, how can it not be?).
