SWEEP: THE STORY OF A GIRL AND HER MONSTER
For nearly a century, Victorian London relied on “climbing boys” to clean flues. The work was hard, thankless, and brutally dangerous. Eleven-year-old Nan Sparrow is quite possibly the best climber who ever lived. With her wits and will, she’s managed to beat the odds. But when Nan gets stuck in a deadly chimney fire, she fears her time has come. Instead, she wakes to find herself in an abandoned attic. And she is not alone. Huddled in the corner is a mysterious creature made from ash and coal. This is the creature that saved her from the fire.
