The Last Of August, by Brittany Cavallaro
After falling in love with the first book in this series, and sharing the love with more than a handful of my sevies, I knew the minute this book came out I'd need to add it to the classroom shelves. I did, and it didn't stay there for long - student after student checked this one out, so fast I didn't get the chance to read it until today!
For those who love Sherlock Holmes, this book (the second in the series) takes a new look at Holmes and Watson, setting them in the present day, and as descendants of the originals rather than the original pair.
I already can't wait for Ms. Cavallaro to write another book in the series ... I want to know what happens to Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson next!
