A fantasy adventure powered by a kick-ass wild-west heroine and a collection of magical objects known as Oddities.
"A thrillingly original fusion of adventure, magic, and epic alternative history." - Jonathan Stroud
"Written with insouciant charm ... eccentric adventure that is true to its name." - Wall Street Journal
The daughter of a murdered physician vows to protect the magical Oddity he left behind - if only she knew what it was - in an alternate nineteenth century in which the United States is at war with Napoleon's France.
When her physician father is murdered, thirteen-year-old Clover Elkin embarks on a perilous mission through warring frontier territories to protect the one secret Oddity he left behind. And as she uncovers the truth about her parents and her past, Clover herself emerges as a powerful agent of history.
A rich, startling, funny fantasy adventure, powered by an irresistible force-of-nature heroine; Clover Elkin is a born fighter - a heroine to rival Lyra Belacqua or True Grit's Mattie Ross.
"Imaginative fantasy adventure ... packed with magical items, full of unexpected twists." - School Library Journal
