A Dark Trade
By (author) Mary Hooper
Gina knows that Victorian London is no place for an orphaned girl – there are those that would literally steal the hair off her head. And so Gina finds work with Thread and Spider as ‘George’, selling burial outfits stripped off rich corpses. The work is dangerous and illegal, but it is better than starving. But then Thread and Spider’s demands increase and friendship with blind beggar girl Annameans that Gina has something to lose. Mary Hooper weaves her trademark spell on her readers with this enchanting book. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
Mary Hooper’s Megan books are modern classics but she is perhaps best known today for her superlative historical YA including At the Sign of the Sugared Plum.
