In October Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Savvy Verse & Wit.






Last week I received The Orphan of Awkward Falls by Keith Grades. From the back cover:

Thirteen-year-old Josephine is not exactly thrilled to move to Awkward Falls, a town known only for its sauerkraut and its insane asylum, but she can't resist snooping around the dilapidated mansion next door. She finds more than she bargains for when she is captured by the strange characters who live there: an ancient automaton who serves as a butler, a cat patched together with a few odd parts, and a boy genius named Thaddeus. Meanwhile, Fetid Stenchley, the most feared patient in the Asylum for the Dangerously Insane, has escaped and there is only one thing on his mind...revenge. Unfortunately for Thaddeus and Josephine, he's headed their way, and his arrival will reveal more than a few secrets about Thaddeus's mysterious past. Can these unlikely friends stop Stenchley and save Thaddeus from his greatest fear - the orphanage - before it is too late?
