Pickpick

This is a Victorian-era sweet romance involving the Dread Penny Society, a secret society made up of authors who wrote penny dreadfuls (cheap serials aimed at middle/lower class readers). This society used their funds and resources to help the oppressed street children of London. The leader, Fletcher, grew up on the streets himself. Elizabeth has her own school for middle-class girls, is a silver-fork author and anonymously pens penny dreadfuls.🔽

robinb The book alternates between real-life stories of saving children from villains, penny dreadful stories penned by Fletcher and Elizabeth and a burgeoning romance. While sweet, this was really between a pick and a so-so for me. I was not as engaged with the story as I could have been. 3/5⭐️ #NetGalley #ShadowMountain (edited) 5mo
