A Patchwork of Books

Each book is going to focus on each one of the main characters' cities, therefore Elettra was given the most development in this book, Harvey will get more of the spotlight in book 2.I can see kids that loved The Mysterious Benedict Society books, Lemony Snicket, and the like really enjoying these.
