So, here we go. It’s time to discuss the second book of All the Wrong Questions. The title of this book is “When Did You See Her Last?” If you haven’t read my review on book one, you can find it here. It’s not much of a review, but you can read it if you want.
Warning: Spoilers May Follow
Lemony Snicket is continuing his investigation of the strange things going on around this town, Stain’d by the Sea. He intends to find out who “Hangfire” is, the mysterious villain who seems to be behind much of the sinister happenings. Meanwhile, Ellington Feint and the statue of the Bombinating Beast—which she took with her—are still missing.
Lemony Snicket and his mentor, S. Theodora Markson, are pursuing another case: The disappearance of Cleo Knight, the daughter of some wealthy ink sellers. Her parents seem to be having a mental breakdown over it, completely forgetting that she’s gone or that there’s anything wrong. The more time their trusted doctor—Dr. Flammarion—takes care of them, the worse they get.
Flammarion says that Cleo probably ran away with the circus, but only Lemony can see that all the evidence points to something very different, and far more sinister. He gathers together his group of friends, along with a fellow named Jake Hix, to uncover these mysteries and stop Hangfire.
Just as before, this book is most fit for junior-high ages. It is a very intriguing story with lots of mystery and humor, and someone will die from time to time. Yay.
This post is just as short as the last post, but it’s a short book. However, I still think it’s worth it. I don’t care is you’re eighteen years old instead of twelve. Just so long as you’re prepared for a somewhat depressing ending to the series.

[…] All the Wrong Questions is geared for middle-school-age kids, but that doesn’t mean you’re too old to read it. The series does not come with a happy ending. You’ll have to provide that yourself. Do not read this book before the other two. I know of people who will do something like that, and I think that’s one of the most foolish things to do. You don’t skip books. You know who you are. You can find my review for the first to books here and here. […]
