A modern-day thriller about Rory, an American high-school student who enrolls at London boarding school for her junior year. Soon after her arrival, a series of murders begins to take place across the city—on the exact dates and in the exact style of Jack the Ripper. Rory’s ties to the killer bring her in contact with a secret paranormal branch of the British police, as they attempt to stop the mysterious killer.
I read about Maureen Johnson's new book the other day and now I'm obsessed with it. I think it sounds super awesome...and original! I've always been interested by Jack the Ripper so the fact that Maureen is actually writing a book about it is something I find fringing' cool. I can't wait until September to get it...hello, birthday present!
