For February, we'll be reading Dodger by the delightful Terry Pratchett. This is set in Dickensian London. From an NPR review:
The eponymous Dodger is a tough-minded, goodhearted 17-year-old orphan who knows every con and survival angle in London, including the importance of minding his own business. But he can't help interfering when he sees two men viciously beating a young woman. Leaving the victim in the care of passersby — Punch magazine co-founder Henry Mayhew and writer Charles Dickens, it happens — he aims his considerable resourcefulness at ferreting out her attackers, who turn out to have far-reaching political connections.
This promises to be a fun intriguing read, so I hope you all can make it out!
