The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline - Nancy Springer

I have been loving this series! LOVING! However, I will say this has been the weakest entry in the series. I still love Enola, but some of aspects of her character are starting to get just a wee bit stagnant. Also, with every single installment I've mentioned the weakness of the mysteries and, for me, this was the weakest of them all. It was so obvious and reliant on coincidences that I almost wanted to scream. In short, this is the first in the series that I've read that really seems written for children - sort of repetitive and purposely simplistic. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but that just isn't how the series has felt thus far. Okay, all the criticisms aside, I'm feeling seriously bummed that I only have one more installment left. This series has been one seriously fun ride. I'm even stalling reading the last book just so I can stretch out the experience just a bit.
