RIPPED--- gruesome, exhausting, thriller...

Read the first two chapters FREE at www.Ripped-book.com
If you like smart, historically accurate thrillers and are not too squeamish around blood, RIPPED should be on your reading list.

Good Points
Ghastly authenticity! Through RIPPED’s time-traveling heroine, Shelly Dickson Carr makes history’s most notorious mystery spring to life in gruesome detail!
-Angela Morrison
author of TAKEN BY STORM and SING ME TO SLEEP

Shelly Dickson Carr totally rocks the world of smart young-adult fiction. Smart she is, with a wicked eye and an understanding of human nature. You will hear a lot from Carr in the future. Her star shines through the London fog in RIPPED, a winner all the way.
-John D. Spooner
Boston Globe columnist & author of NO ONE EVER TOLD US THAT

RIPPED by Shelly Dickson Carr is exactly the novel you want to curl up with and spend a long weekend traveling to nineteenth century England. It’s a deliciously thrilling romp for readers everywhere. I loved every single page!
-Dorothea Benton Frank
New York Times best-selling author

Have you ever wished you could time travel? Well, after reading RIPPED, you may want to reconsider... because your journey back to Victorian London, with a smart, sassy, modern teenager named Katie Lennox as your guide, will be filled with danger, terror, surprising encounters in London’s dark alleys, a lot of nervous laughter, and the kind of page-turning excitement that would leave any reader of any age limp with exhaustion. But that’s what makes it such a terrific entertainment. So...don’t reconsider anything. Just dive in and start traveling.
-William Martin
New York Times best-selling author of BACK BAY and THE LINCOLN LETTER

You’ll be torn by the need to race through the pages of RIPPED to discover what horror happens next, and the desire to slow down and savor the fascinating details
of Victorian London. A ripping-good novel!
-Ellen Yeomans
author of RUBBER HOUSES
