The second installment of the All The Wrong Questions series.
Snicket is proving himself to be an apt investigator. After his adventures of the first book Lemony is making friends and forming alliances. He may be twelve or thirteen years old but he is much smarter than his age would lead you to believe but, just like anybody, his lack of experience sometimes get the best of him.
In this adventure Snicket and his chaperone are tasked with finding a missing girl. But is she truly missing?
More of this fantastic world is developed and a larger conspiracy is brought to light. The twists and turns make this book such a treat, I really feel like I'm in a privileged position just being able follow in the author's imagination. He is less concerned with the story making sense than creating something special. The real treat is that the stories DO make sense, eventually, in their own way.
