Alchemy and Meggy Swann - Karen Cushman

Meggy Swann’s uncaring mother sends her to filthy, chaotic London to live with her father, an inept alchemist. As hopeless at parenting as he is at alchemy, he sends her on numerous errands, oblivious or unconcerned that she walks with difficulty using sticks, making it hard to maneuver the crowded streets. Life takes a happier turn when Meggy and the apprentice Roger form a belligerent but strong friendship. Meggy is a feisty charmer whose gritty and amusing idioms will delight readers. Karen Cushman’s fans will welcome her return to a medieval setting for ALCHEMY AND MEGGY SWANN (Clarion, $16). Ages 10-14. JKS
