I was pleasantly surprised by The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline by Nancy Springer. I took a chance and downloaded it via the SYNC audiobook program this past summer. I seem to be game for new takes on known franchises. I didn’t even realize that this novel was a part of a series! I guess that’s a good a place to start as any! You need not to have read/listened to any of the preceding novels to understand what is happening in The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline. Enough information is given, when needed, to help you understand why Enola is on her own and why she is at odds with her brother, Sherlock.
