Lydia has vanished.
Lydia, who’s never broken any rules, except falling in love with the wrong boy. Lydia, who’s been Piper’s best friend since they were children. Lydia, who never even said good-bye.
Convinced the police are looking in all the wrong places, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail begins her own investigation in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. With the reluctant help of a handsome young detective, Piper goes searching for answers in the dark underbelly of 1924 Chicago, determined to find Lydia at any cost.
When Piper discovers those answers might stem from the corruption strangling the city—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.
From the glitzy homes of the elite to the mob-run streets of 1920s Chicago, Stephanie Morrill’s jazz-age mystery shows just how far a girl will go to save her friend.
I haven't read much YA fiction but if THE LOST GIRL OF ASTOR STREET by Stephanie Morrill is an indication of the genre, that is certainly going to change. Superb narrative, a gripping plot, and characters that really make you emotional and caught up in the action are just some of the wonderful aspects of this fantastic story. In Chicago in 1924, Piper Sail is determined to find her best friend Lydia, who has disappeared into thin air. With the help of a dashing young detective, some new friends, and her own dogged determination to uncover the truth, we are swept into her journey of mobsters, love, and heartbreak. With colourful descriptions and the full array of emotions displayed throughout, THE LOST GIRL OF ASTOR STREET by Stephanie Morrill is sure to keep you mesmerised from beginning to end. With intrigue, loss, love, secrets, and friendship at its core, this novel has got it all, and a main female character that is completely kick-ass and admirable. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖📖 5++++
Stephanie Morrill is the author of several young adult novels, including the 1920's mystery, The Lost Girl of Astor Street (February 2017, Blink/HarperCollins). Despite loving cloche hats and drop-waist dresses, Stephanie would have been a terrible flapper because she can’t do the Charleston and looks awful with bobbed hair. She and her near-constant ponytail live in Kansas City with her husband and three kids. For more information:
