Meg Pickel's older brother, Orion, has disappeared. One night, Meg steals out to look for him and makes two surprising discoveries: She stumbles upon a séance that she suspects involves Orion, and she meets the author Charles Dickens, also unable to sleep and roaming the London streets. He is a customer of Meg's father, who owns a print shop, and a family friend.

Mr. Dickens fears for Orion's safety and for the children of London, and is trying to solve the mystery of their many disappearances. If he can, with Meg's help, then perhaps Dickens will be able to write once again.

    " Not as good as Steinbecks Ghost but an ok read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 9/3/2013

    " It was an okay read, but I don't know if I would recommend it to my teens. There were bits of supernatural thrown in for no reason. Plus certain plot points just did not make sense. The author tried too hard to match the tone of a Dickens novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claudia Wayland | 5/31/2013

    " I am unsure of whom this would be written for - I think that the Dickensian language and situations would be lost on young readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 3/15/2013

    " The premise was interesting, but I found the execution slightly boring at times, and the writing was... different. I can't quite place what he was trying to do... so, not a "bad" book, but by no means was it spectacular. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 2/2/2013

    " Loved the way that this author infused the book with references to characters or scenes from many of Dicken's novels while telling a tale all it's own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Merriman | 1/24/2013

    " Used book goodness arrived in the mail. Item 1 - "no longer property of the Queens Library" stamped on frontispiece. Item 2 - Nenita's dental appointment card left in book. Did Nenita remember to see Dr. Ben-Levy in Bayside, NY on Sept 20? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Graham | 9/22/2012

    " Although it leaves you hanging there with some details, the book -which gets better as you move along-does a great job pulling you into the City and caring about the main character (girl!) as she searches for her brother. Strong middle school interest if they enjoy historical fiction/mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Smith | 8/20/2012

    " Fortunate enough to have received an Advance Copy. This is one of those books you'll keep forever. It reads and feels like a great Dickensian tale, complete with perfectly executed illustrations. It's all things Dickens -- characters, wit, and a rousing good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelie | 12/10/2011

    " Love the way the author took the stylings of Dickens and wrote the book in that fashion. It wasn't just a novel with Dickens in it... it was very much in his style. Well done! good story. Enjoyable tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen McConnell | 8/10/2011

    " Though I haven't read any YA since I was a YA, this book is just terrific. Told from a young girl's point of view, she joins Mr. Charles Dickens on a hunt for her brother who has been missing for six months. Funny, engaging, and doesn't speak down to its audience! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginnyrichey | 6/3/2011

    " Love the ' Lennon and McCartney Private fire Insurance Company" "

    " I rather enjoyed this little story and the villain cameo at the end. Read it on a total whim, though I seemed to have read a lot of fictionalized Dickens stories this year.

    "Maturity and experience shouldn't stop one from craving silly things like sliding down bannisters." "
