"Poor Ivy Pocket! Not only is she an orphan, and all alone in the big wide world, but she is also a walking disaster who causes mayhem, misunderstandings, and mischief wherever she goes. So, knowing this about Ivy Pocket, would you ask her to deliver a totally priceless, incredibly beautiful, and possibly cursed diamond necklace to Matilda Butterfield in time for her twelfth birthday ball?

This fun series-opener tells the tale of Ivy Pocket, an orphaned lady's maid in Victorian England with delusions of grandeur who gets involved in a supernatural mystery surrounding a cursed necklace. The plot becomes unnecessarily complicated midway through the book, but it's saved by Ivy's narration, since it is consistently fun to watch her wildly misinterpret all the clues around her, being rude to everyone she encounters in the process. It's Amelia Bedelia meets Lemony Snicket -- and I mean that as a compliment.
