Why I want to read this:
I have always been fascinated by Jack The Ripper. There is just something about him that is so mysterious and haunting that I am just compelled to him. I even have books about him (Now you all probably think I'm crazy XP) A book written in a YA format is like my dream come true! This book seems so suspenseful and intriguing I can hardly wait!
