This fun series-opener tells the tale of Ivy Pocket, an orphaned lady's maid in Victorian England with delusions of grandeur who gets involved in a supernatural mystery surrounding a cursed necklace. The plot becomes unnecessarily complicated midway through the book, but it's saved by Ivy's narration, since it is consistently fun to watch her wildly misinterpret all the clues around her, being rude to everyone she encounters in the process. It's Amelia Bedelia meets Lemony Snicket -- and I mean that as a compliment.
