Of all of Jakie Frenches work, this isn't her best to be completely honest.
Now don't get me wrong, I love Jackie French - she's one of my favourite authors - however this book didn't live up to her usual standards.
I loved the idea, and the way she portrayed each character, and I have the uttermost respect for the amount of work that went into it, I just don't think it was her best work.
There were a couple of places I got a bit lost, a few I just wanted the story to end.
I love Jackie, but she could have done a lot better
However that's just my opinion
For me, this was one of those books I just could not bring myself to put down.
The Name of the Star follows Rory Deveaux, an American teenager from Louisiana as she attends her senior year at a London boarding school. Her arrival in England coincides with the begining of a series of gruesome murders by what appears to be a Jack the Ripper copycat.
Written from Rory's point of view, The Name of the Star is a brilliantly written, witty and emotional. A very good read.
