Olivia Brownlow is no damsel in distress. Born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, she is as tough and cunning as they come. When she’s taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, her life goes from fighting and stealing on the streets to lavish dinners and soirees as a debutante in high society. But she can’t seem to escape her past…or forget the teeming slums where children just like her still scrape to survive. Jack MacCarron rose from his place in London’s East End to become the adopted nephew of a society matron. Little does society know that MacCarron is a false name for a boy once known among London gangs as the Artful Dodger-or that he and his aunt are robbing them blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia Brownlow in places he least expects, his curiosity is piqued. Why is a society girl helping homeless orphan thieves? Even more intriguing, why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This clever retelling of Dickens’ Oliver Twist is perfect for readers who love romance, adventure, historical settings, and heroines who can kick butt in formal gowns.” Booklist (starred review)
“A delightful, action-packed historical tale.” School Library Journal
“A charming re-imagining of the classic story Oliver Twist. There is the perfect balance between historical details, solid pacing, and strong character voices.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“British narrator Pearl Hewitt introduces listeners to the mysterious Olivia Brownlow…Hewitt characterizes Olivia with graceful and elegant tones as she mixes with elite crowds. When Olivia ventures into the dark London nights as Ollie, a kindhearted boy who looks after a group of homeless orphans, Hewitt arms her with a rougher British accent and a wise voice. When Jack MacCarron, another character leading a double life, is introduced, Hewitt seamlessly switches between the man’s false Irish accent and his true English tone. Though switching between two main characters, who both have dual identities, poses quite the challenge, Hewitt accomplishes it with a smoothness that is found in only a select few narrators, flawlessly pulling off the performance.” AudioFile
