Maureen Johnson Introduces The Name of the Star

The Name of the Star is a mystery by author Maureen Johnson.

In this video, Maureen tells us a little bit about the book  The Name of the Star is about an American girl named Rory Devaux, who has recently moved to London and is starting boarding school there.  At the same time, a series of gruesome murders begins; murders very much like those committed years ago by Jack the Ripper!  Rory gets caught up in the mystery.

It’s fun to hear Maureen talk about the book.
