October: The Peculiars by Kieran Larwood

 The Peculiars are a band of misfits, trapped in a nightly Victorian sideshow. There's Wolfgirl, Sheba; Sister Moon, who can move at the speed of light; and Monkey Boy, ace climber and human stink bomb. But during the day, in a world of childsnatchers, grave robbers and dastardly doctors, they solve the mysteries no one else cares about - including why London's poorest children are being snatched from the banks of the Thames …

The Peculiars is an amazing and thrilling book full of mystery, suspense and humour. It was first published on the 7th of June 2011 as The Freaks. It is by Kieran Larwood, author of the award-winning Podkin One-ear series. It is about a young girl called Sheba, although she has a secret that sends most people running for the hills! Overall, it is an amazing read for anyone who likes mystery, action, suspense and drama.
