This is such a good book. I hope you can read it an enjoy it the way i did.
Some books know just how to land in your heart and stay there. Loved this middle grade novel 💙💚💜🧡
What an absolutely delightful MG historical fiction story. The life of a chimney sweep in 1800s London is a dangerous one. Nan is stuck in a chimney when a fire starts. Somehow, she wakes to find herself in an attic with a golem watching over her. This is a story of a courageous young girl, the families we make, being a minority/other & finding your way in a place that doesn‘t always accept you, & daring to make a difference. Recommended.
A book about a little girl in Victorian London. She is a chimney climber. Her life is very depressing and tragic..Fortunately, she has a little bit of magic—and luck in her life. Surprisingly, I wished there were illustrations in this book. I would have loved to see what Charlie and Nan actually looked like in the author‘s eye. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hey! Did i tell y‘all this ended up being a TOP pick for 2018? I loved it. It‘s kinda like Oliver crossed with a fairy tale. Golems might be my favorite mythical creature. Well. After dragons and phoenixes. Anyway, I think that the lesson here is to never let #LibraryFines define you.

Loved this book - even more than the author‘s earlier book Night Gardener which I didn‘t think was possible. Beautifully written characters and a moving, emotional story. The endnotes connecting it to the history of the children who worked as chimney sweeps in the Victorian era were a great addition. Loved it!
Book 3: This book was adorable! And now I must nap, because I am still sick, and it‘s important to listen to your body. Hope everyone is having a wonderful #readathon so far! “See” you in a bit. 📚❤️😴
