"Rose Campion and the Stolen Secret" by Lyn Gardner is the first of a series about a 'mighty girl' called Rose Campion and her music hall friends. Rose is being raised by Thomas-the owner of Campion's Music Hall. She doesn't know who her father or mother were but she has a big family of Victorian music hall entertainers. In this first excellent, fast paced tale she makes life long friends and solves a mystery. There are some very nasty characters, some real challenges to overcome not least making a living in Victorian times. It's a fantastic read. I read the second one first last Friday and then had to dash out to get a copy of the first one as it was so good. Think due to some of its darker elements 9+ but a gripping yarn-go and get a copy IMMEDIATELY!
