The Story of Cirrus Flux by Matthew Skelton
Cirrus has been left at an orphanage since birth and no one has wanted to adopt him. So why is this lady bound and determined to have him now?
Bluefire, a division of Random House Kids books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). It has been published, so look for a copy at your local bookstore.
This rousing story is set in London in 1783. Cirrus doesn't know anything about his parents and hasn't many friends in the orphanage, but he does get fed and cared for so it's not so bad. That changes...
The story includes a mean lady mesmerist, a tiny man with an all-seeing eye and a skull-collecting maniac. It's Cirrus' bad luck to have something they all want, even if he doesn't know it.
There's lots of action, unbelievable events, and soon you're rooting for more than Cirrus in this excitable adventure tale. It's a good read and should interest boys and girls who enjoy fantasy and adventure novels.
I'm not young, but I really enjoyed this read. Why don't you try it, too?
