    • Abstract:
      Summary: Olivia Brownlow, born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, is as tough and cunning as they come. Taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, she's now a debutante in high society. But she can't forget the teeming slums where children still scrabble to survive. Jack MacCarron, once known as the Artful Dodger, became the adopted "nephew" of a society matron. He and his "aunt" are robbing society blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia, he wonders why a society girl is helping a bunch of homeless orphan thieves--and why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew?-- Adapted from dust jacket.

Booklist Reviews 2017 December #1

*Starred Review* Vivacious and lovely, 18-year-old Olivia Brownlow is a highly eligible young woman in London's 1859 society. Before her long-lost uncle took her in, she grew up disguised as a boy named Oliver, who became a street rat in a gang run by the Artful Dodger. Olivia can't forget her origins, and while snooping around during a formal dinner, she comes upon another sneak—the eye-catching gentleman named Jack MacCarron, who was also about to lift jewels from their owners. Olivia recognizes Jack as the Artful Dodger but keeps her identity from him. Though it's love at first sight, the two wrestle with their unsuitable affection and unsavory pasts. Toss in Olivia's impending engagement to a friend for whom she feels only platonic love, and a powder keg of a romantic triangle develops. The story's breathlessly paced, quick-witted adventures offer more twists than a Shakespearean comedy of errors, as assumptions, secrets, etiquette, competition, and sexual tension create one ridiculous situation after another. Written in language tailored to the setting, the occasional modern turns of phrases feel as if one's corset briefly has been relaxed. 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. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
