I just finished this book by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon. Not a great book, but the perfect change after reading 40-odd Newbery books. The book is the story of Jazz, a girl that has been taught to be paranoid and to run and to hide. After finding her mother murdered, she runs and finds herself in the London underground. Meeting thieves , ghosts and possible answers to her past, Jazz’s story is a mixture of horror, magic , and steampunk. a very gritty mix that combines Oliver Twist and Gaiman’s Neverwhere. A good quick read  with an edge.   I’m looking forward to more  of  the Hidden Cities  Novels.

I am confused about one thing, where did we hear of this book?
