The best Ebook Look Into My Eyes Shirley's One-Sentence Summary: Veronica Mars in Sin City for TweensI'm a fan of the precocious teen girl.I love...and...And most of all...Yay! Show Aussie Ja'mie "Soo Hot!" King some love! So therefore I should love Ruby Redfort, a rich-and-it-shows, super-smart, attitude-laden spunky spy girl in Lauren Child's new lower YA detective series.The thing with rich girls is, no normal person actually really likes them, so they're best done with a tongue-in-cheek, almost satirical way because truth be told, we just want to snark at them. Unfortunately, I struggled with the first four chapters because Lauren Child's wants you to take Ruby Redfort seriously. Yes, one wall of Ruby's room is an entire bookshelf, she drinks banana milk imported from Europe, wears Oriental Rose perfume and is "one of those girls who people talked about as 'having her own style'" (actual quote). And "when you met her you felt a strong need for her to like you" (also another verbatim quote).Look, I'm no detective and I know that this novel is set in a reality-suspended, high fantasy world, but the alarm bells are ringing a little Mary Sue!Luckily on page 46 the storyline kicks in and I was able to become absorbed in the plot, which is complete with a secret agency, high dramatic baddies and a plot that I hoped would be full of juicy clues and be twistier than... well... a bag of twisties. Actually, about that. I recently read The Secret Seven (The Secret Seven #1) for the first time since I was eight and was surprised at how well the mystery was formulated. The final reveal and twist were genuinely good. So yes, despite the fact that adult-eyes allows me to see that Peter is a controlling monkey and no one knows what Pam and Barbara actually do... but back then I was kinda excited that a bunch of kids used a shed out the back as headquaters and went on adventures. I lived through them vicariously.With Ruby Redfort I understand that it's set in a super glammed-up versian of the real world. The secret agency and the baddies (including a head honcho who liked to dangle victims over volcanos) are nods to the classic crime genre and it's all in good spirited fun. But I felt empty and bored. Like I couldn't really connect. The novel is scattered with little brain teasers and codes to crack, but I didn't want games, I wanted to participate heart and soul, like how I badly wanted to it to be The Secret Eight so I could be in it too.The other thing is, I grew up watching cartoon films like:I don't understand this new shizz:And like the majority of modern animation films, I felt that this book was crammed full of "adult" content, for adults to indulge in. The adult characters (like Ruby's mum and dad, and the adult agents and villains) shine a million times more than Ruby. And there were in-jokes and other delightful things in this book that pinged and tingled on my adult-radar, but didn't really awaken my sleeping inner child.Maybe I just come from a different era and modern kids love this sort of thing. I've never read any of Lauren Child's famous Clarice Bean books and I am most definitely not in the appropriate age group. I'm just saying all this as a fan and reader of teen fiction.This book is immaculately written, full of wit and charm, that plays out like a Sin City for Tweens in my head, but ultimately did not look me in the eye (ha ha!) and win me over.This review also appears here on Books On Marrs.
