Review Detail4.8 5
If you like smart, historically accurate thrillers and are not too squeamish around blood, RIPPED should be on your reading list.
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.

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.
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!
