RIPPED received three coveted Ben Franklin Awards at the 2013 Independent Book Publishers Association's Awards Ceremony in New York City. Gold: The Bill Fisher Award for Best First Book. Silver: Best New Voice. Silver: Best Mystery/Suspense. Katie Lennox wishes her parents were still alive. Having to leave Boston to live with Grandma Cleaves in London was hard, but she's making new friends, working on her British accent and even learning some Cockney rhyming slang. London's cool and actually feels like home in some ways, like she's been here before, belongs here. When a museum visit with her cousin and his cute friend turns funky, Katie finds herself in a long, uncomfortable dress, wearing a ridiculous hat, wondering what happened to her jeans and high-top sneakers? And where's her iPhone?... It's London, 1888. Smart and gutsy, Katie knows she's here to stop Jack the Ripper. The serial killer didn't just slash his victims' throats; he butchered the women. Katie has read about the Ripper, knows the names of his victims and where and when they were killed. She's watched her fair share of CSI. Can Katie save their lives?

The book, for the most part, was clean enough from romance and violence that even for your younger, more advanced readers to delve into. The author focused on developing an en...
I'm all for taking a fantasy and twisting it into something else, But not when it's a real story. The idea was good but It would have worked better if it was set back in London in 1888 rather then going back to the past. If you're that scared of Madame Tussauds house of horrors how is it not scary t...
