Okay, it's time to talk about this book. It's totally good! It just came across the pond this year and it is so action packed and awesome!
Catherine Royal earned her last name by laying in a basket as an infant outside the Theatre Royal in London. That's where she was found and where she's lived ever since. (So fun!) When her benefactor, theater owner Mr. Sheridan, mentions a diamond hidden in the theater, Cat volunteers to help him keep it safe and under wraps. But there are all kinds of dangers on Drury Lane! The French Revolution is under way and street gangs and wanted men are about! Oh! and a little romance, too! Nothing super gushy, this is a third party romance.
I think pretty much everyone will like this book, and that's why I'm recommending it specially for Clare. She doesn't waste time with namby-pamby boring and lame books. Also she likes awesome phraseologies such as those found in this book. Read it Clare, or I'll give you a gob full of claret!
Oh! Also awesome maps in this book!
