In Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon, Olivia Brownlow is no damsel in distress. Born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, she is as tough and cunning as they come. When she is taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, her life goes from fighting and stealing on the streets to lavish dinners and soirees as a debutante in high society. But she can't seem to escape her past, or forget the teeming slums where children just like her still scrape to survive.
Jack MacCarron rose from his place in London's East End to become the adopted 'nephew' of a society matron. Little does society know that MacCarron is a false name for a boy once known among London gangs as Artful Dodger, or that he and his 'aunt' are robbing them blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia Brownlow in places he least expects, his curiosity is piqued. Why is a society girl helping homeless orphan thieves? Even more intriguing, why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew? Recommended for ages 13 years and older.
