Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

This isn't for everyone. However, anyone who likes BBCAmerica and Agatha Christie will love this. If you give it a shot and like it- try Agatha Christie and Dr. Who. Flavia is a totally unique character and her family is equally unique. Lots of references to the British public school system will be kind of familiar to any Harry Potter fans. It isn't like any other young adult stuff I have read, but I liked it. There are sequels.
