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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A charming and gripping tale…Buzbee creates solid characters (and certainly has fun naming them, as did Dickens) and an authentic flavor of Dickensian London, enhanced by Ruth’s striking and evocative black and white drawings…while addressing issues of feminism, the search for identity, and child abuse.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A rollicking good historical mystery, written in Dickens’ style and illustrated with appealing line drawings, which include a subtle tip of the hat to a more contemporary London that a few YA readers may catch.”

    Booklist

  • “Deliciously elaborate…The sights, sounds, and stenches of nineteenth-century London are palpable.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A 2011 Edgar Allan Poe Award Nominee for Best Juvenile Fiction
