Scarlett is an outlaw and thief, stealing from the few towns that dot the wilderness of a dystopian Britain. Albert Browne is an unassuming boy with more secrets than sense, and the only survivor of a tragic accident. When their paths cross, it sets off a startling and fast-paced chase across the wilds, one where danger lurks in the form of men in bowler hats with guns, and massive carnivorous otters that haunt the River Thames. This book was a blast to read with electric characters and an exciting plot - it'll keep you entertained until the end. --Jordan
