The Magnificent Lizzie Brown and the Mysterious Phantom. By Vicki Lockwood.

This historical mystery/adventure story set in Victorian London , has lots of 'cliff hangers' ,making it compulsive reading , I couldn't put it down!

When Lizzie Brown escapes from her heavy drinking father , and the Rats Castle Victorian slum ,she is cold , poor and hungry until........Fitzy's travelling circus rolls into town.

Whilst working for the circus ,helping Madame Aurora ( the palm reader),she realises that she can actually read palms! She can see people's past , present and future when reading their lifeline.

Meanwhile  she overhears the news of an illusive phantom  in London ,who is robbing wealthy people's houses.
As she does a reading she sees the phantom strike again.
With the help of her newfound friends from the circus they go after the phantom.

I loved reading this book ! I literally couldn't put it down and read it in one day. I didn't expect the ending to be anything like it was either. A fabulous read.
It reminded me of the Gully Potchard story too , so if you liked that you'll definitely enjoy this one.

I rate it 5/5 and think boys and girls would like it.

This is my review for
