Review: What would have happened if the Patriots had lost the Revolutionary War and America was still a colony of Britain's industrial empire? This alternate eighteenth-century novel finds Charlotte living under the radar, just barely surviving until she must join the resistance at age 17. When she finds "Grave", a boy lost in the woods, everything changes. She, along with her brother Ash, and Jack Winter must go to the Floating City to find the Inventor. Charlotte learns that Jack is actually one of Britannia's elite families on whom she must rely to achieve their goal. She struggles with pretending to being a lady and accepting Jack as a true partner. Truly creative and fun to read, this book is difficult to put down.
