A fantastic retelling, It's Oliver Twist with a twist (Pun intended). Oliver Twist was a girl. I really can't think of any other way to say it. But when young Ollie was reunited with HER long lost uncle, She went from scrappy orphan Oliver Twist, to Beautiful miss Olivia Brownlow. And now she lives a comfortable life that is a far cry from her old one. But the past that Olivia has so long tried to bury resurfaces, and Olivia finds her old friend, Dodger, now Jack, trying to bury his past as well. And before long, against all odds, Olivia finds herself in love with the handsome young gentleman Dodger has become. But as hard as Olivia and Jack try, they just can't seem to bury the past, and as another street lord arises, along with another long lost relative, Olivia and Jack must remember their past and do everything they can to protect the ones they love, even if it ends in death. The Author did a fantastic job weaving the old story to her new one, and I definitely recommend this book. However, it is geared towards a more mature audience, I would say 13+. And I would place it in the category of Romance, with a little bit of mystery and a tinge of action/adventure.
