The Madness Underneath  - Maureen Johnson I really enjoyed The Name of the Star and was so looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It didn't have the same urgency and creepiness as Book #1 and I found Rory more whiny than quirky and charming as she was in the first book. And don't even get me started on the ending...what was that???

No doubt I'll read the next book if only to find out what happens, but I don't have the same sense of excited anticipation for that one.
