I excused myself to go see a duck about a dress.”
Jackaby by William Ritter
While I’m certainly not out of my reading funk, I semi-enjoyed reading Jackaby, a Victorian Sherlock-esque type YA (?) book. While there were redeemable elements (good inclusion of the supernatural, a story that moved, and a fairly decent protagonist), it didn’t truly draw me in and I won’t be finishing the series. Still, I did like this line from the book.
