Product Details


Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, September 2, 2013:
“Hopkinson adeptly recreates the crowded, infested streets of London, but it’s her distinct, layered characters and turbulent, yet believable plot that make this a captivating read.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, October 2013:
“Although detailing a dire period in history, Eel tells his story in a matter-of-fact and accessible manner, making his story palatable and entertaining.”

From the Hardcover edition.
