“Golding weaves a fine historic tale about the antislavery battle in England in the 1790s by way of an ensemble of colorful characters, death-defying adventures, witty dialogue and narration, and lively action.”—"Booklist," Starred Review “The London streets come alive, as do the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade. Despite the youth of its narrator, this thriller will captivate teens as old as fifteen or sixteen. Cat has a zest for life, unadulterated by her encounters with the worst of the age. Every setting and character in this story is richly imagined, and readers will look forward to the next adventure.”—"VOYA"
