Yesterday @KirkusReviews...

...I wrote about William Ritter's Jackaby, which I enjoyed very much INDEED:

Abigail Rook, our narrator, is a runaway, an upper class British girl in search of adventure. She didn’t find it in her attempt to become a paleontologist—she just found a lot of dirt and rocks and extremely uncomfortable sleeping arrangements—so she hopped a ship to America and ended up in New Fiddleham, New England. Whereas Jackaby has a talent for seeing things invisible to other humans’ eyes, Abigail has a talent for seeing the everyday details that other people miss. (And in that way, she’s ALSO a Holmesian character!)
