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!

It‘s already hour five of the readathon! GO TEAM. I‘m enjoying SWEEP, and making lunch. I like to carbo-load for readathons like I‘m running a race. But then I get in my hammock in my jammies and read books. BEST. RACE. EVER. What‘s on the menu for you today? - @Liberty #readathon 📚
