Like you, I've only read The Curious Incident, but the girls have
each read one of the books. Becca read Fire Eaters, and found it
quite disappointing - she's a big DA fan, but didn't think this was
up to the level of the others. And Cara's read The Garbage King and
thought it was really very good - I think it was the third book by
Laird she's read recently, and she's told me I have to read them too.
