This one was actually pretty good. The author has hit his stride with the writing style, the cross-book plot is sidling into view, and the characters actually have some agency, all in the same book. ( )

I like how we're not having that "This word--which means this" in the narration anymore. Now we're just having the adult characters say thing like "This is a word--which means this" and then have our main character think "I've known that word since I was 10, but I'm too polite to tell that to this adult." I feel my middle school self would have enjoyed this way much more. ( )

While I loved this series as a whole, this particular title didn't quite meet the bar. It is difficult to recall exactly what threw me about this book so many years after having read it, but I'm guessing it might have something to do with the character Esme, who strikes me as too over-the-top, even in a series of books with highly unusual characterizations.

Epigraph
Dedication
For Beatrice -- When we met, my life began. Soon afterwards, yours ended.
First words
The book you are holding in your two hands right now - assuming that you are, in fact, holding this book, and that you have only two hands - is one of two books in the world that will show you the difference between the word "nervous" and the word "anxious".
Quotations
If you are ever forced to take a chemistry class, you will probably see, at the front of the classroom, a large chart divided into squares, with different numbers and letters in each of them. This chart is called the table of the elements, and scientists like to say that it contains all the substances that make up our world. Like everyone else, scientists are wrong from time to time, and it is easy to see that they are wrong about the table of the elements. Because although this table contains a great many elements, from the element oxygen, which is found in the air, to the element aluminium, which is found in cans of soda, the table of the elements does not contain one of the most powerful elements that make up our world, and that is the element of surprise.
