RU Level: Secondary
Set during Victorian England, Nan is an accomplished chimney sweeper--a job which is unusual for a girl. One day she gets stuck in a chimney with a fire set burning below and is rescued by a Golem made from soot and ash. Nan not only raises this Golem but tries to bring about change in the working conditions for chimney sweepers in the process. How do these two improbable things mix?
Will be enjoyed by students who like thoughtful, well-written historical fantasy.
