This fun Barrington Stoke story follows Etty, an orphan reunited with her brother on the streets of Victorian London and taken to work for Fagin. But the work isn't at all what Etty is expecting, and Fagin doesn't employ girls...
Fagin's Girl contains lots of important historical context making it great for classes studying the Victorian era, or as a way of discussing Australia and colonialism. Many of the terms and situations covered are explained in greater detail at the back of the book.
Etty is a sweet main character it's easy to root for and this story has plenty of heart. The illustrations are great too.
Thank you Barrington Stoke for sending me a copy for review.
