Agnes Wilkins is standing in front of an Egyptian mummy, about to make the first cut into the wrappings, about to unlock ancient (and not-so-ancient) history.

Maybe you think this girl is wearing a pith helmet with antique dust swirling around her.

Maybe you think she is a young Egyptologist who has arrived in Cairo on camelback.

Maybe she would like to think that too. Agnes Wilkins dreams of adventures that reach beyond the garden walls, but reality for a 17-year-old debutante in 1815 London does not allow for camels - or dust, even. No, Agnes can only see a mummy when she is wearing a new silk gown and standing on the verdant lawns of Lord Showalter's estate, with chaperones fussing about and strolling sitar players straining to create an exotic atmosphere for the first party of the season. An unwrapping.

This is the start of it all, Agnes's debut season, the pretty girl parade that offers only ever-shrinking options: home, husband, and high society. It's also the start of something else, because the mummy Agnes unwraps isn't just a mummy. It's a host for a secret that could unravel a new destiny - unleashing mystery, an international intrigue, and possibly a curse in the bargain.

Get wrapped up in the adventure... but keep your wits about you, dear Agnes.

Listener Opinions

    " Bradbury has created a delightful mixture of The X-Files (but not quite so freaky), Jane Austen (but not quite so much romance), and Spy Games (but not quite so serious). I really enjoyed Wrapped. Yes, it is a little far fetched, but it is so much fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry Smith | 2/6/2014

    " Stayed up till one thirty this moringing to finish this book. Was hoping for a two hour delay. Didn't happen. Really enjoyed this book and hope there are more on the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Donner | 1/26/2014

    " This book combined two things that I love: Egyptology and 1800s high society London. Those things do not seem to go together, but Jennifer Bradbury manages it here. I thought the romance and the espionage aspect were fun, although quite unrealistic. What drew me to this book originally was the gorgeous cover. Finding out is about mummies made me want to read it even more. The story was fun, the mystery kept you reading, but in the end it was just an okay book. I have read worse and better. I still have several middle schoolers I would recommend this too though. "

    " cute! i wonder if there'll be another... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darkpool | 1/16/2014

    " A great yarn - I particularly appreciated the inclusion of an Author's note, detailing a couple of deviations from known history. Gives me confidence that even tho this is a bit of fiction, the author has taken a deal of care to make sure details are right and true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 1/5/2014

    " Mummies, Regency England, spies, and romance. What's not to love? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annrosey | 12/16/2013

    " hard to get into but it gets good once the mystery kicks in. have to stay with it for a while until she begins visiting the museum. good book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krista | 12/6/2013

    " So dumb. Did not like this book it was full of silly frills and a waste of my time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynae | 11/7/2012

    " This really reminded me of The Season, but I didn't enjoy it as much. The culprit was very predictable and the romance didn't have the smooth flow I expected it to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gesse | 10/19/2012

    " Pretty anachronistic...and the characters aren't terribly well-developed/believable. Fun if you enjoy regency England and (sort of cliched) heroines who buck the traditional gender expectations of their time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robbie | 8/8/2012

    " This is a great book for all ages. I would definately recommend it for someone who does not like to read because from the first page it will have you hooked till the end. Plus the history that is interwoven throughout is the icing on the cake. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 11/27/2011

    " Great period novel that doesn't stretch the bounds of believability too far. Definitely appeal to Jane Austen fans, although probably not to Jane Austen fanatics. Look forward to more from this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/2/2011

    " Very fun! Good for older fans of Theodosia and younger fans of Austen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 10/17/2011

    " A romantic adventure mystery for those who love Jane Austen--and mummies! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 9/26/2011

    " The first thing that catched my eye and made me grab the book instantly was the amazing cover.
    But I rated it five stars because I loved how the plot was developing in a slow but delightful way. The way Agnes thinks and feels about others was so admirable. I really enjoyed reading this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 9/23/2011

    " This book was OK- could have been better though. Not sure how appealing it will be to teen readers though. Historical, mystery, romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cajsa | 8/27/2011

    " I was really drawn to this book because of the beautiful illustrated cover...I know, kind of lame, but the story did sound interesting too. It was a fast, easy read with a little mystery and romance. Cute book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 8/20/2011

    " Teen historical mystery with a dash of romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 8/18/2011

    " I enjoyed this book a lot. Good storyline, nice pacing and well-developed characters. A refreshing read compared to most of the YA stuff out there these days. "
