Biografia breu
Maureen Johnson (born February 16, 1973) is an American author of young adult fiction. Her published novels include 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Name of the Star, Truly Devious, and Suite Scarlett. Among Johnson's works are collaborative efforts such as Let It Snow, a holiday romance novel of interwoven stories co-written with John Green and Lauren Myracle, and a series of novellas found in anthologies The Bane Chronicles, Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, and Ghosts of the Shadow Market.

Johnson was born in Philadelphia and attended an all-girl Catholic preparatory high school. She graduated from the University of Delaware in 1995 with a degree in English. Johnson later worked variously as literary manager of a Philadelphia theater company, a waitress in a theme restaurant, a secretary, a bartender in Piccadilly, and an occasional performer in New York City. She studied both writing and theatrical dramaturgy at Columbia University, where she received her MFA in Writing.

Johnson's debut novel The Key to the Golden Firebird was published in May 2004 by HarperTeen. Centered around themes of grief and resilience and set in the suburbs of Philadelphia a year after his passing, the novel depicts three sisters of different age as they individually process and come to understand their father's death, and their paths ahead. The Key to the Golden Firebird entered the market during a resurgence of popular interest in the young adult fiction genre. In 2005, it received starred reviews from both School Library Journal and Booklist.



This light, humorous book pokes fun at the conventions of cozy mysteries set in English villages. It's very reminiscent of Edward Gorey, but somewhat lacks his dark wit. The illustrations and text are amusing enough and the book short enough to justify the quick read, but it's a little too lightweight to be enduring.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the premise was interesting, and I always love reading about travel, so that was a bonus too. My biggest complaint is that I felt like the main character's personality was a bit weak. Like the story moved because of events and like she didn't really have that much to say about the things that happened.

Dryly hilarious. Divided into two sections, The Village and The Manor, with subsections under each (e.g. village events, rooms and architecture, frequent guests), complete with Gorey-esque black-and-white illustrations with red spot color.

I love this

I’ve always enjoyed Maureen Johnson’s books, and this one didn’t disappoint. Stevie, the main character, is dynamic and interesting, and I was invested in her story from the first paragraph. The mystery was great, and it ended with a plot twist that I did NOT see coming.
