    New York City is gearing up for the 1883 World's Fair, and Molly Pepper is hoping her mother, Cassandra, will be able to snag a spot in the inventor's hall to show case some of her amazing inventions. However, when the spot is given to a man - again - Molly and Cassandra devise a plan ...

    It's hard not to like the Pepper's, both Molly and Cassandra, though maybe a bit more of Molly. They've had to survive some hard knocks in life from the passing of her father to the ruination of their business to the scraping through mud of the family name, but as their family saying g...

    Public library copy This reminded me of a couple of other Victorian era adventure books. I liked it, but they are a hard sell in my school, so I may pass. Do love the Hero's Guide books, but even those haven't been going out as much this year as in the past. ...

    Fun and adorable! I always enjoy Healy's work, and this book promised all the humor, action, and emotions I've come to expect. Looking forward to the sequel! ...

    This was a fun book jam-packed with action, adventure, & unique characters. I appreciated the fact vs. fiction section at the end as there are a lot of historical figures in this novel. ...

    Oh, hello, this sounds awesome... ...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss. I enjoyed Healy's previous series "A Hero's Guide" and was excited to read this one. It was pretty good, but it seemed like Healy was trying too hard to be clever. A little more content and a little less campiness would have made this a much stronger story...

    2.5. It started off fun, but became so madcap and zany that it wasn't cohesive or understandable. It's also so chock-full of historical references cheek-and-jowl with made-up people/places/things that I could see myself as a kid being utterly baffled as to what is historically accurate...
