by Maureen Johnson

Name of the Star coverRory Deveaux, a Louisiana senior in high school, arrives at her new London boarding school to a chilling series of events: someone has been imitating Jack the Ripper, a historical villain who was famous for his gruesome murders of young women. The police have gotten nowhere; security camera footage shows only the victim...or so they think. Separated from everything she knows as home, Rory sees what no one else sees--the invisible criminal, and the secret side of London.

I really liked this book! It was a little scary because of the murders and the general spookiness (this is a supernatural, slightly gory book) but the plot caught me immediately. I wasn't able to put this book down!

Both guys and girls can read this, though I think that girls who like darker books would enjoy this the most.
