Ripper SIGNED 1st / 1st


With 2013’s Maya’s Notebook, Allende departed for somewhat darker
territory, also shifting her focus to an adolescent heroine. That book
may have surprised fans, but it was still a No. 1 San Francisco
Chronicle best seller and made the New York Times and Boston Globe lists
as well. Here she continues in the same vein. Amanda Jackson doesn’t so
much identify with her mother, good-hearted holistic healer Indiana, as
with her father, who’s divorced from her mother and serves as the
SFPD’s deputy chief of Homicide. A fan of crime fiction and the online
mystery game Ripper, MIT-bound Amanda indulges in a little investigating
of her own when murder starts breaking out all over town. Then her
mother disappears.
