In My Mailbox (June 27)

In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...

For Review (Part of Traveling to Teens)

The Body at the Tower (The Agency 2) by Y.S. Lee (ARC/Published by Candlewick/Release Date: August 10, 2010)

This is another colourful, action-packed Victorian detective novel about the exploits of agent Mary Quinn. At a young age, Mary Quinn is rescued from the gallows and taken to Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls. The school turns out to be a front for a private detective agency. At age 17, Mary takes on her first case (A Spy in the House). In this, the second book of the series, Mary Quinn sets out to uncover the truth behind a suspicious death at St. Stephen's Tower, better known as the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament. The accident occurred after hours in a highly public part of town and despite the presence of night watchmen. Mary, disguised as Mark Quinn, becomes a builder's assistant to find out the truth about the body at the tower.




I've got a couple others on the way from a sale at Barnes and Noble, but I'll post about those next week. What did you get?

I've been wanting to read this series for the longest time, dangit, and nearly forgot. Now that cover reminded me and I'm just itching to hop on over to B&N and get it. *sigh* B&N isn't even open. They should have 24 hour service.
