Gaslight

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Firefly

It's 1899 in Cardiff and Nansi lives a life in the shadows. After her mother mysteriously went missing, Nan survives by thieving and taking part in fraudulent stage shows under orders from Pernicious Sid, the Empire Theatre's ruthless owner.

But with a love of books and her best friend Bee keeping her strong, Nansi is determined to find out the truth about what happened to her mum - even if it leads her into real danger.

Gaslight is a fabulous ride, full of heartstopping moments as Nansi's fearlessness gets tested to the limit.

With Dickensian characters and a brilliantly realised atmosphere, young readers will be transported into another world - there's nothing sanitised about Eloise Williams' take on Victorian Cardiff. Children and adults alike will be unable to stop tearing through the pages, just as desperate as Nansi to find out what's really been going on in those gaslit streets…
